Vespula Vulgaris


Wasps are venomous creatures. They can pose a serious health hazard to anyone with allergies, causing symptoms such as swelling, hives, difficulty breathing, and in some cases, even death. Wasps can make nests in the ledges of your home, trees, in the ground, and even inside your home.

Common Misconception

A single nest can host thousands of wasps. Though off-the-shelf products can kill some of these numbers, they are not powerful or widespread enough to take on the entire nest.

Short Term Solution

To slow the infestation:

  • From a safe distance, locate the wasp nest. Spray the area with a killing product from the store. It will kill some of the wasps instantly.
  • After spraying, wait a day to make sure you have killed the dwellers of the particular nest. It is important to remove the nest if possible.
  • Make sure none of your window screens have holes.
  • Keep all doors, windows and garage doors closed.
  • Install insect screening over your attic vent and exhaust vents.
