Wasps are a constant threat to Roseville homeowners. There are about a thousand species of social wasps. The key identifying aspect of social wasps is that they live together in a family of many individuals. Wasps are always keen to find a sheltered nesting opportunity; once they get established, they can pose a significant concern for homeowners. Wasps, as a group, are very protective of their hives and defend them by swarming and delivering multiple venomous stings. Wasp control is essential to keep your property safe and enjoyable.

How To Identify Common Types Of Wasps

Wasps in Roseville are serious business, and you don't want to have a negative encounter with them. Here are some common wasps that you might face and how to identify them:

  • Yellow jackets: Live inside enclosed nests and can number in the thousands.
  • Paper wasps: Tend to live on 'open face' nests of no more than about a hundred wasps.
  • Mud dauber: Build mud tubes on the sides of houses to lay their eggs.

Mud wasps will only sting if severely threatened, but paper wasps and yellow jackets are extremely protective of their hives and will sting in swarm attacks. If you are struggling with wasps on your property, call Neighborly Pest Management today. We know all about Roseville wasp control.

The Potential Dangers Of A Wasp Infestation In Your Yard

Wasps are generally considered beneficial. They are great for pest control, and they help control pest bug populations. Wasps generally stay away from humans in the wild, only interacting with them if humans come around their nests. Around your home, there is a much higher chance of negative interactions with wasps. Yellow jackets are especially dangerous because they frequently nest underground and can aggressively respond to vibrations in the ground. Children, pets, and other family members can provoke an aggressive response simply by walking near unseen nests. 

Don't risk getting stung if you discover a wasp infestation on your property. Neighborly Pest Management knows how to kill wasps and how to keep wasps away with effective stinging insect control in Roseville.
