Vancouver Wasp Removal

Finding a wasp nest on your property is an unsettling and scary experience. Many people try to steer clear and ignore it, others fret and look to have it removed as soon as possible, and some make the mistake of trying to handle it themselves. You really never know how many wasps are inside the nest or the surrounding area, so even when you believe you’re dealing with a vacant nest, you could end up with a swarm of angry wasps on your hands. Read on to learn from Rentokil, formerly OnSite Pest Control, about the dangers of wasps and what it means to remove them properly.

Why Are Wasps So Dangerous?

Many people in Vancouver BC have been stung by a wasp at some point in their lives. The unfortunate ones have been stung multiple times at once, and there’s a reason for this. Yes, they are easily agitated, but wasps only sting when they feel threatened. In this circumstance, they release a pheromone that calls to nearby wasps to help them ward off a potential predator.

This means that tampering with a wasp nest could lead to loads of wasp stings. A perceived threat to one is an assumed threat to the whole nest. Because of this, we urge our customers to keep a good distance from wasp nests on their property.
