Wasp Control in the Greater Houston Area
While many wasps are solitary creatures that don’t pose much threat to people, social wasps can quickly take over an area and their stings can be very painful. Unlike bees that only sting once, wasp stingers remain intact so the wasp can sting repeatedly. While wasps also have the ability to bite, they rarely bite humans.
Wasps can build large nests and they will fight to defend it. If you come across a wasp nest, it is best to steer clear of it to avoid being swarmed. Swarms may also be found around trash cans, picnic areas and other places where ripe fruits and sugary treats are accessible.
Paper Wasps often make nests under eaves and other protected areas. Yellow Jacket nests are commonly found in abandoned rodent holes as well as cavities in walls, ceilings and roofs.
