Stinging insects like wasps can be dangerous to have in your yard. Most of them are pretty territorial, and not all die after stinging people, which makes them even more aggressive. Keeping all types of stinging insects out of your San Diego yard is much easier with the help of experts.

When you turn to Green Flash Pest Control for inspections and treatments, we help you get started on pest control in San Diego that keeps your property safe from wasps.

How To Tell If You Are Dealing With A Wasp Infestation

While many kinds of infestations can lead to insect bites and stings, wasps are some of the most hostile pests you can have on your property. Other flying insects that sting, like bees, are relatively docile and pretty harmless if you leave them alone.

The difference between bees and wasps is that bees are more reluctant to sting since they die after using their stingers. Many types of wasps, however, can sting multiple times with no consequence, making an aggressive swarm a serious health risk. That's why it's important to be able to properly identify a wasp infestation or, better yet, turn straight to the pros to safely identify and address the problem. Some common signs of a wasp infestation include finding wasp nests on your property or spotting the wasps themselves.

At Green Flash Pest Control, we can correctly identify what kind of bug has invaded your yard and quickly address the problem. Contact us today if you see signs of stinging insects on or around your San Diego property.

The Potential Dangers Of A Wasp Infestation

Most pests that form nests on your property will leave you alone, but wasps are territorial and can be incited to sting just because you wandered too close to their nest. When those nests are on or around your house, the likelihood of an encounter goes up.

How bad can a little sting be? Well, the venom in a wasp's barb causes intense burning, and people can be allergic to all kinds of stinging insects, not just bees. Even people who aren't allergic can still go into shock and wind up in the emergency room if they are stung by a swarm. This is what makes wasps the perfect example of a pest you cannot and should not try to remove on your own.

Proper wasp removal from experts can save you from painful attacks and ensures the nest is completely taken care of. Contact Green Flash Pest Control right away if you see wasps around your San Diego property.

Practical Tips To Prevent Wasps From Coming Back

Home pest control experts don't just help you get rid of a problem. Professional treatments also ensure your pest problem doesn't come back in the future. While there are a number of services baked into our approach for pest prevention—like installing exclusion methods and sweeping away any nests that form—there are also some practical tips for you to consider that can help make your yard less appealing to wasps.

Here are some factors to keep in mind while thinking about ways to make your property less attractive to wasps and other pests:

  • Water Sources: Yards with puddles or water features are naturally more attractive to insects like wasps, so addressing these water sources can help you avoid pest problems, especially in the summer.
  • Landscaping: Keeping your trees, shrubs, and grass trimmed leaves fewer harborage points for wasps to build their nests around.
  • Pest Control: Wasps hunt other bugs, so general pest control that reduces all the pest activity on your property will actually help to protect you from wasp infestations, too.

To address all of these factors properly and in the most cost-effective way, it's best to turn to trained experts for inspections and pest prevention services. To get the best wasp prevention near you, turn to Green Flash Pest Control today.
