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 the brood and the majority of the exterior of the nest. When appropriate a residual pesticide will be applied 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.
