Wasp Removal

Wasp removal in Canada is a household necessity but it is no picnic!

Canada is home to many flying insects, but the wasp is definitely the most common “troublemaker” we have to deal with at Toodaloo Pest and Wildlife Control. Nests and hives are easily recognizable but identification of the insects who made them is a different story. Each type is different in many ways, and making that distinction is very important when it comes to treatment techniques. See below for identifying characteristics of wasps, hornets and bees.

Reactions to insect bites and stings are some of the most common allergies found in Canada. This makes Wasp removal a dangerous undertaking if carried out incorrectly.
