WASP Control & REMOVAL
Our Wasp Control & Nest Removal Service
Our Unique Approach To Wasp Nest Removal
Calling a professional to help you get rid of hornets, yellow jackets, or paper wasps is your best option, even if you’re comfortable removing them on your own. These stinging insects make nests in tricky spots like the ground, your home’s walls, and other hard-to-reach areas, plus getting rid of them depends on the time of the year.
1. WASP NEST INSPECTION
We’ll perform a thorough inspection of your property, checking for nests under eaves, in the ground, around bushes and trees, and more. Our goal is to locate all nests and identify the wasp species (hornet, yellow jacket, paper wasp, etc.) so we can get rid of these stinging insects for good.
2. KNOCKDOWN NESTS
We’ll use an aerosol spray to treat the wasp nest(s). We spray at night because (1) the wasps are far less aggressive, and (2) are all at home. After a majority of the wasps are dead or have flown away, we’ll remove the nest. This waiting period takes 24 hours on average.
3. KILL EMERGING WASPS
We’ll dust void areas with an insecticide to kill emerging wasps and discourage them from returning next season. This will continue to kill wasps for six months (or more) in areas where the dust is protected.
4. SPRAY FUTURE NESTING AREAS
We’ll spray the wasp infestation (and surrounding area) with a residual liquid insecticide. This treatment not only controls wasps but also prevents these stinging insects from constructing nests in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, but it’s not something we recommend. It takes special skills to remove stinging insects safely. Hornets and yellow jackets are far more challenging (and dangerous) to remove than paper wasps. So if you decide to treat a nest on your own, please proceed with caution. Follow standard safety protocols like treating the nest at night and wearing a wasp suit sealed at the wrists, ankles, and collar.
