Stinging insect control
Our Stinging Insect Control Service
Our Unique Approach To Stinging Insect Control
Calling a professional to help you get rid of hornets, yellow jackets, or paper wasps is your best option, even if you’re comfortable removing them on your own. These stinging insects make nests in tricky spots like the ground, your home’s walls, and other hard-to-reach areas, plus getting rid of them depends on the time of the year.
1. WASp/hornet NEST INSPECTION
If necessary, we’ll perform a thorough inspection of your property, checking for nests under eaves, in the ground, around bushes and trees, and more. Our customers often know what they’re dealing with, and we’re happy to give them a quote by phone. Our goal is to locate all nests and identify the wasp species (hornet, yellow jacket, paper wasp, etc.) so we can get rid of these stinging insects for good.
2. KNOCKDOWN NESTS
We’ll use an aerosol or liquid spray to treat the wasp/hornets’ nest(s). We are trained to safely treat to minimize the risk of being stung while eliminating your problem. We often recommend waiting several days before removing any nests (or feel free to leave it there).
3. KILL EMERGING WASPS/hornets
We’ll dust void areas with an insecticide to kill emerging wasps and discourage them from returning next season. This will continue to kill wasps for six months (or more) in areas where the dust is protected.
4. SPRAY FUTURE NESTING AREAS
We’ll spray the wasp infestation (and surrounding area) with a residual liquid insecticide. This treatment not only controls wasps but also prevents these stinging insects from constructing nests in the future.

Yes, but it’s not something we recommend. It takes special skills to remove stinging insects safely. Hornets and yellow jackets are far more challenging (and dangerous) to remove than paper wasps. So if you decide to treat a nest on your own, please proceed with caution. Follow standard safety protocols like treating the nest at night and wearing a wasp suit sealed at the wrists, ankles, and collar.

As a small business owner, it is important to me to support other businesses in the community and a pleasure to do so with a great company.”

He completed the work in an efficient manner and we have been so far so good! He urged me to contact him if we started seeing bugs in our home and explained that he would come back out to address those issues if that happened. I would highly recommend him.”
