One Two Tree Wasp Control
At One Two Tree, we know the threat that wasps can bring with them when they decide to start nesting around your property.
Wasps, also known as yellowjackets, can make your home a dangerous place to be due to their aggressive defensive nature and ability to sting.
Wasps, Scientific Name: Hymenoptera
Northern Paper Wasp
A nominally available species of wasp that tend to stick around easily accessible areas due to their nesting habits. Their large paper nests can be found around property that has readily available wood, such as homes, barns, trees, and fences.
Cicada Killer Wasp
Unlike its cousin, this species of wasp is known for its solitary nature and hunting for its aptly named prey, cicadas. Adapted to aggressively hunt cicadas, they rarely sting humans, making them one of the more helpful species of wasps.
As their name would imply, this species of wasp colonizes trees, but can also be found
underground and in dwellings. Though not as aggressive unless their nests are threatened, tree wasps are considered pests due to their tendency to nest in inconvenient places.
The subtropical climate of South Florida is perfect for wasps of all species, who enjoy the warmth and large number of trees that they can create nests in. They can be beneficial as they provide a natural deterrent for pests that feast on the decorative shrubbery and plants around your home. However, as heavily defensive social insects, wasps can.
The Problem with Wasps
Wasps can be seen as both a curse and a blessing on the natural greenery of Miami, due to their ability to eradicate invasive pest species. However, if their colonies are too large, and their nests are way too close to human dwellings, they can be considered a problem. Their naturally aggressive state can be directed towards humans and pets with disastrous results.
Lay the Sting on Wasps
One Two Tree handles wasp infestations with careful assessments, colony exterminations, and when possible, nest removals.
Homeowners are encouraged to leave removal and insecticide treatment of wasps to professionals, as they can cause harm the unexperienced removal technician.
Outside of sealing up any possible entryways, homeowners can prevent wasp colonies from moving in by covering up trash containers and removing any possible pest based food source. While not recommended, sealing up any entrances with impermeable material such as stone or mortar is considered a last resort.
Our team of specialists will use specialized insecticides to kill off any lingering colonies of wasps around the property. While we can exterminate, our main goal is to control the population and stop any wasps from stinging you and your family.
If all else fails, our team of professionals will remove the nest from any sensitive area around your property. This is to prevent any collateral damage from the rest of your property, including wood rot, dry wall damage, and other household damage.
