What To Do About Wasp Nests On Your McKinney Property

In our area, it is common to find wasps and hornets building nests under rooflines. It is also common to find them building nests in ground holes and in the voids of man-made structures or landscaping. Let's take a moment to discuss the life cycle of wasps in McKinney, and what you should know about wasp nest prevention.

Every winter, wasps die off. In the spring, life begins again as overwintering fertilized females emerge from hiding and begin establishing nests. These nests start as small half-umbrella shapes in hidden places. In summer, most nests develop into an ominous egg-shaped orb. You may see these above ground or you may only get a hint of their existence as wasps go in and out of crevices or holes.

Spring is an important time of year for nest removal. If you catch a nest early, you may be able to remove it with the sweep of a broom. Wasps will abandon a nest that has been detached. Check the outside of the developing nest before performing your sweep to make sure the female wasp is not crawling around on top of the nest. If she is on her nest, be sure to give yourself a path of escape. She's not going to like it when you destroy all of her hard work.

How A Professional Can Help

There are two ways a pest professional can help you avoid being stung by wasps and hornets. The most obvious is the removal of an established wasp nest. A licensed and insured professional has protective gear and is equipped to handle even the most difficult wasp control scenarios, such as a yellow jacket nest inside the wall of a home. But the way a professional can help most is by providing early detection and removal of nests around your home. Don't wait until you or someone you love has been stung by a wasp. Invest in year-round pest control that includes wasp nest detection. Routine visits from a licensed and experienced pest control professional will prevent wasps from creating nests in secret hiding places. A professional knows where to look and is aware of what conditions are conducive to wasp activity.
