Bees and Wasps

Wasps set up shop in the corner of your kitchen window? This is not uncommon. It is this time of year that these wasps are setting up shop for the summer. If you happen to stumble upon one of their nest, it is important not to over react. Take a look at the size and activity of the nest, and then come up with a plan. If there are just a few bees and the nest is accessible enough , you may be able to just knock the nest down with the pressure of a garden hose. Stand far away because the water will not kill the wasps, but the nest will be gone. Also be aware that the wasps that were out looking for food will be returning and not happy to find their home gone. So be aware of agitated wasps.
If the nests are more involved or larger, you may need to use a wasp spray that can attack the nest from afar. If the nest is bigger than you can handle, always call a professional.

Wasps are a common problem everywhere. Here in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma I see wasp problems daily. I always spray the nest then take it down to assure there is no problem for my customers. Great article and keep up the great pest control blog.

Im a pest controller and this year is the worst i have ever seen for wasps. All that wet weather has killed off a large percentage. The moles seem to be going mad tho with all the rain!

This is really not advised to remove bee by yourself as bees may attack unprotected and untrained persons. They may use chemical sprays unsafely to kill bees or smokers to calm the bees and make removing them, and the hive, dangerous.

I've been trying to deal with some wasps ever since I moved into this home. They decided to set up their hive right next to my shed in the back yard, so I've been hesitant to let my kids out there to play. I'm thinking its time to call in someone to take care of them before any more show up.
