Wasps and hornets are stinging insects that belong to the order of insects known as hymenoptera. This is the same order of insects that ants belong to. These insects are known as beneficial insects as they are pollinators. Depending upon specifics species they will nest in the ground or in nests which they construct in various locations from the eaves of homes to trees or bushes.
Yes, wasps and hornets account for about 30 percent of the 54 deaths related to arthropod bites each year. Some individuals are allergic and may suffer anaphylactic shock due to being stung.
Wasps and hornets may be difficult to control and that is why our service includes the necessary products and follow up visits for one fee. Our treatment methods consist of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the interior and exterior of your home, then a targeted treatment of all areas where activity is present. Each Initial Service includes the application of seven exclusive Pest Guard steps, designed to rid your home of unwanted pests and keep them away.
Follow Up - Quarterly interior/exterior or exterior-only services will be scheduled as part of our annual Integrated Pest Management program. All Schendel Premium Care customers enjoy the benefit of our PestZero Guarantee. If pests return in between visits, Schendel returns for free.
Due to the complexity of treatment and the time required, wasps, hornets and other stinging insects are generally not a pest many people have success in eradicating on their own. Beware when purchasing pesticides and other products online as many are not effective. Pesticides can be harmful to people and pets if they are misused or mixed improperly.
