Important FAQ About wasps In Your Area

Our exterminators do not recommend you attempt to remove a wasps nest, no matter the situation, so no one gets hurt or stung.

Call our professional wasp removal exterminators if you’re worried about a wasp nest near your home or outdoor living space! They’ll use protective gear and leverage their highly-skilled expertise to address any wasp issue, whether it is a minor situation or an entire wasp infestation.

If you come across a wasp nest, it’s essential to contact our professional exterminators immediately. We’ll arrive at your location promptly and safely remove any wasp nest from your home, outdoor living space, or office.

If you want to avoid the risk of being stung, we recommend you not attempt the do-it-yourself approach. Wasp nests can be dangerous, so it’s best if you let our wasp removal exterminators remove them for you. Many people try to remove these themselves, which typically results in someone getting stung or unexpected damage.

Wasps are always bustling with activity. If you find one near your house, outdoor living space, or office location, it is likely searching for food. If this happens and they’re a little too close for your comfort, there’s more than likely something sweet like candy or a sugary beverage out or on the exterior surfaces. If you have no food or beverages around your area, these annoying insects are simply trying to find a great location to establish a new nest.

If you’re the curious type and wish to learn more, our friendly exterminators are happy to share more information regarding the specific wasp infestation at your location and a successful next step you can take to prevent future wasp activity.

The wasps tend to stay close by when searching for food. If you see them buzzing around your house, it is best not to leave any food accessible as these annoying insects thrive on sugary goodness.

In Omaha and Council Bluffs, there are four common types of wasps. Knowing which kind of wasps are causing problems in your home will help our local insect extermination team can take the right course of action to remove the wasps from your home as quickly as possible:

  • Cicada Killers: These are the most prolific wasp species in the Midwest and measure about 2 inches in length. They can be clearly identified by the bold yellow stripes that mark a black body.
  • Paper Wasps: Also, known as umbrella wasps, these wasps have a spindle-shaped body, measure about 1 inch long, and have brown and yellow patterned markings.
  • Yellowjackets: Yellowjackets are usually stout-bodied, medium-sized, and black in color with vibrant yellow bands. When disturbed, they can inflict repetitive painful stings so be sure to stay away.
  • Mud Daubers: With a ‘thread-waisted’ appearance to their body, this medium-sized wasp has two different species; the blue dauber and the yellow and black dauber. Their nests are usually constructed of clay or mud.
The answer would be yellow jackets and paper wasps! If either of these annoying insects starts flying around you, our exterminators advise you to calmly walk away if you find that one of these insects starts flying around you. If you find wasps or their nests around your home or outdoor living space, we recommend that you not attempt to address this insect yourself. Instead, contact our professional exterminator as soon as you see them or evidence of this insect.
Wasps can be a nuisance any time of year; however, they are more predominant and annoying in the fall season as they start making their nests. Our exterminators recommend contacting us immediately if you see them flying around your home or outdoor spaces. We can address the issue if a nest has not yet been built. If they have already created a nest, we treat the area and remove the nest for you so your space can be peaceful once again.

Wasps build their nests from either mud/clay or from paper, made by stripping wood pulp from fences, trees, stakes, and other wooden structures on your home or office locations. If you notice that wasp activity around your Omaha or Council Bluffs living or work area has increased, there’s a very good chance that a nest is present.

Our exterminators are top-notch wasp removal experts who advise inspecting the following areas of your home where wasp nests are typically found:

  • Wall cavities
  • Roof spaces
  • Bird boxes
  • Barbecue grills
  • Roof Spaces
  • Garages
  • Under eaves and hangings

To identify where the nest is, pay close attention to the flight path of the worker wasps as they return to your Omaha and Council Bluffs property. This will be easier in the summer months as the number of wasps will increase.

A paper wasp nest has an all-brown appearance similar to paper wrapping, but don’t let this simple appearance fool you! These nests contain potent venom that can cause health problems ranging from severe allergic reactions to death depending on how many times someone is stung.
While yellow jackets and paper wasps may not be as intimidating, their stings can cause extreme pain. Also, depending on the wasp species, the venom can contain a powerful enough substance for allergic reactions, leading to anaphylactic shock in some cases!
