As we enter the heart of summer in Sacramento and ready our yards to spend the Fourth of July outdoors this weekend, there’s nothing that can put a damper on your weekend quicker than spotting a wasp nest on your home. You don’t want to be swatting away those dangerous pests while you grill up your hot dogs and hamburgers. 

Removing a wasp nest can be dangerous work. Wasps sting and bite, and wasp sprays from your local hardware store are not always reliable or effective. At Earthwise Pest Management, we always recommend hiring a professional pest control company to remove wasp nests. 

In today’s blog, we are going to discuss a few reasons why you may want to consider bringing in the Sacramento pest control experts from Earthwise to remove that wasp nest in your yard. Continue reading to learn more and then contact us for safe and effective wasp removal. 

Wasp Removal Is Dangerous

Removing a wasp nest from your home is dangerous and a recipe for disaster. Professional pest control experts have extensive experience, knowledge, the right tools to do the job, and insurance. Using wasp spray that you purchased from your local hardware store, swinging a baseball bat at the nest, or trying to burn the nest are not effective or safe ways to remove a wasp nest, yet these are the tactics that many homeowners use to avoid hiring a professional pest control company. 

Save yourself the trouble, frustration, and the injuries and give your Sacramento pest control experts a call. 

You or a Family Member May Have Allergies

Another reason that wasp removal should be left to the experts is because you, a friend, or a family member could have an allergy to wasps and not know it. The last thing you want is someone to get stung by a wasp and have a serious allergic reaction. Even if you are wearing gloves, glasses, and other safety gear, an innocent bystander may still get stung or bit by a wasp while you are trying to remove the nest. 

Mistakes May Cost You Money

While you are attempting to remove the wasp nest, you may cause damage to your home that will end up costing you more money in the long run. Some homeowners attempt to spray nests with water and cause damage to their homes, while others try to burn nests. These tactics are not safe or effective and will end up damaging your home in most cases. Hiring a professional pest control expert for wasp removal is not only the safest way, but is many times also the most cost-effective. 

You Will Expose Yourself to Harmful Chemicals

When you use over-the-counter wasp sprays, you are exposing yourself to harmful chemicals. Every time you spray the product, you and everyone around you are inhaling them. Professional pest control experts know how to protect themselves and many even use environmentally-friendly sprays to treat wasp nests. 

Pest Control Experts Have the Proper Equipment

Wasp nests are often found on the exterior of your home, in a corner, tucked away underneath where your roof meets your home. They are hard to reach which makes them even more difficult to remove. Pest control experts have the proper equipment to take care of wasp nests whether they are located near your roof or on your porch. They have ladders, protective equipment, the proper chemicals, and experience. Investing in professional pest control to remove a wasp nest may end up being the best decision you’ve ever made.

Professional Pest Control is More Reliable and Effective

Removing a wasp nest on your own isn’t just difficult, dangerous, and frustrating, it’s also not the most effective or reliable course of action. When you hire a professional pest control company for wasp removal, you can be sure that the wasps are gone for good. Removing wasps and other pests is what pest control companies like Earthwise do for a living, and they are much more likely to be successful at it than you. Many pest control companies even guarantee their work.
