Customers that can see a greyish nest realize where and what kind of pest problem they have.
Where this can be more complicated is when a wasp or bee is seen going into a hole in the exterior of a home. A single wasp or bee doesn’t mean a nest has been created. A consistent pattern of wasp or bees coming or going form the same area is a strong indicator of a problem.
Note: Customers that get wasps with long dangly legs piling up on a building on warm sunny day in the fall should see the cluster fly section of my web site. The treatment for this problem is the same as the treatment for cluster flies minus the interior window treatment.
When the nest can be seen I will use a residual pesticide to treat the nest. Once the nest is treated I will remove it from it’s location and treat the area with a residual pesticide to prevent the nest from being rebuilt.
If your problem is inside a wall void I will perform an interior inspection to insure your problem will not spill into your home. After I have completed this inspection I treat the nest with the safest method for the customer.
Note: For customers that are not comfortable with the use of pesticides, under the right conditions, nests can be removed without the use of pesticides.
Customers should stay clear of the nest area until activity stops.
What to Expect
Often all activity will stop before I leave your home. With wall void treatments activity may last 24-48 hours. Carpenter bee’s reduced activity can last up to a week.
For all wasps if activity exists after 72 hours, I will come back and re-address the problem. For bee’s, I ask customers to wait a week before judging the success of the treatment. If there is still activity after a week I will come back and re-address the problem.
Prices can range from $45 to over $300 for complicated problems.
