Pest Problems – 3 Signs That You Have A Wasp Infestation

For homeowners in Omaha and Council Bluffs, wasps are among the most unwelcome sights in any home or garden. With their often-aggressive behaviors, they can sting multiple times and will work together to defend their nests if provoked. Here at Genie Pest Control, we understand the havoc that wasps can wreak on your backyard fun during the summer months, and we’re here to help!

If you have noticed the number of wasps in your area increasing in recent weeks, there is an excellent chance that there is a nest nearby. Although wasps do not usually attack humans, when temperatures rise during the summer months, nests can become crowded, causing the wasps to become more agitated and, therefore, more likely to sting unprovoked. To avoid your summer being ruined by wasps, you must take action quickly if you suspect you have a wasp infestation. Our team of wasp removal experts at Genie Pest Control has identified three ways to determine if you have a wasp problem.

Increase In Activity

As the weather becomes warmer in the summer months, you might notice more insects flying around your home and garden. Wasps can typically be identified by their slender bodies and long wings; their bodies will be marked with either black and yellow striped bands or brown and yellow patterned markings. Should you notice, more wasps swarming around a particular area of your home, be sure to get in touch with our team of wasp removal experts at Genie Pest Control to investigate the issue further.

Chewed Wood Around Your Home

While some wasp species build their nests using mud or clay, other wasp species create their nests using paper. Stripping wood fibers from wooden structures such as exterior wooden elements of your home, trees, stakes, and fences by chewing the wood, wasps can cause damage to your property over time. Keep an eye out for small holes or tunnels appearing on wooden surfaces around your home. While chewed wood is a telltale sign of a wasp infestation, it can also indicate the presence of termites or ants. To determine the current insect issue, be sure to contact our team at Genie Pest Control so we can investigate and deal with the issue effectively.

Finding A Wasp Nest

The most obvious sign that you have a wasp issue in your home is discovering a wasp nest. Wasps typically build their nests in sheltered areas that allow easy access to the outdoors. As wasps will always defend their nest, here at Genie Pest Control, we always advise calling in the professionals to assist with removing a wasp nest. Wasp nests are often found in your home in secluded areas such as in roof spaces, garages, under eaves and hangings, in wall cavities and bird, in trees and bird boxes. Be sure to pay close attention to these areas of your home, and if you discover a wasp nest, contact a pest control professional immediately.

Just the thought of bed bugs can make most people itch. While many feel their cleanliness standards would never allow for bed bugs to enter their homes, the facts are that keeping a clean and tidy home doesn’t prevent these annoying and unpleasant pests from entering your home.

Bed bugs are essentially parasites and as such, they get around by looking for an opportunity to hop on and ride along with an unsuspecting host. They are small, oval, brown-colored insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. Adult bed bugs are about the side of an apple seed and have characteristically flat bodies. After a good meal, their bodies puff up and are reddish in color.
