Wasps and hornets are sometimes helpful to humans. Several species are used as parasites by humans to combat pests, such as in agriculture. Others are predators that keep insect populations in check. Others act as pollinators and assist in the fertilization of plants. However, an overabundance of these insects causes a slew of issues in both residential and commercial settings. There is also the risk of health implications. That is why Magee Pest Control will help you control them and keep your home safe.

 

Wasps and Hornets: How Did I Get Them?

Wasps like to build their nests in the eaves, soffits, and gutters of buildings. They are drawn to yards by flowers and plant life, as well as patios and other outdoor dining areas with crumbs or messy soda spills that have not been cleaned up. Garbage cans that aren’t adequately sealed and filled regularly attract wasps looking for food. Both emerging and mature wasps have plenty of prey on properties with a lot of insects and spiders. Nests left behind by hornet populations that die during the winter months are usually not reused by subsequent generations of wasps, contrary to common but incorrect belief.

Wasps and hornets: How Serious Are They?

Wasps and hornets near the house will sabotage outdoor activities and make yardwork difficult. Wasps are rarely aggressive, but if threatened or disturbed, they may become aggressive. Their stings are painful, but for those who are not allergic to the wasp’s venom, they usually are not life-threatening.
