Pest control is rarely ever fun, but it is even less so when it is dangerous. You might be able to chase down a silverfish or eradicate a carpenter ant colony but when it comes to dealing with wasps, removal is best left to the professionals. Stings are one of the most common allergens throughout Canada. Getting too close to a wasp nest can result in painful stings or even life-threatening injuries. If these bothersome bugs are buzzing around your home or business, all it takes is one call to Toodaloo to get rid of them. Our Coquitlam wasp removal services can identify what types of wasps you are dealing with, track and remove nests, and do it all safely.
Wasps are known far and wide as one of the most fearsome houseguests around. These winged wanderers roam the Metro Vancouver area, terrorizing homes, commercial properties and multi-unit or strata spaces. With other infestations, managing your pest problem might be as simple as throwing down a bait station or laying a trap but wasps are another story all together. You might be able to find traps that work for the odd bothersome buzzer but nest removal is a dangerous practice. Instead of dodging one stinger, dealing with a nest means dealing with hundreds – or even thousands!
As Winter gives way to Spring, it is not uncommon for these pests to fly under the radar. Just because you can’t see them, doesn’t mean that pests aren’t up to no good. In fact, this is the time that wasps are at their most productive. Pest populations suffer during colder months, so it is important to rebuild as soon as they are able. Nests are made up of a chewed papery substance, stuck together and then layered. These nests serve as a living place, nesting place and a place to lay eggs. If paper wasps and yellow jackets would keep to these areas, homeowners likely would not have such an issue with them.
Once construction is finished on the nests and their energy is spent, wasps go out on the hunt for a pick-me-up in the form of sugars and proteins. It is during these food-related expeditions that these insects are most likely to encounter humans. There is nothing better than a beachside picnic, but nothing ruins these faster than having stinging pests dive bombing your meal! Whether you are out in the world or safe at home, wasp control should be left up to professional pest management services.
Many property owners turn to pest control services for mouse or bed bug infestations but try to handle wasps on their own. In addition to their aggressive tendencies, nests tend to have very high populations. As nests go unnoticed or untreated, populations begin to rise across communities. Before you know it, British Columbia will be overrun! From West Vancouver, Burnaby and White Rock, all the way to Port Coquitlam, Port Moody and onward, our technicians have got you covered!
Instead of spraying poison toward a pest or their home, the experts at Toodaloo take a more sophisticated approach to wasp nest removal. The first step is to track nests down! Just because you are catching sight of wasps, does not mean that you know where they are coming from. Nearby trees, roof peaks, gutters, rafters and garages are all common places for these pests to set up shop. Once these homesteads are tracked down, it is time to lure the insects out. By drawing wasps away from their nests, Toodaloo experts can remove the nest without the threat of stings.
Just because precautions have been taken does not mean that our specialists are out of the woods. In addition to a custom treatment plan, each member of the Toodaloo team is outfitted with top of the line safety equipment. A pest control company is only as good as its safety precautions. When discussing safety, it is important to note that this does not just refer to our specialists. Keeping clients safe is priority number one, tied only with caring for your environment. Instead of dumping harsh chemicals or poisons into your home or workspace, the Toodaloo approach takes an environmentally friendly approach to banish bugs from your property.
Another important aspect of proper pest control is knowing exactly what you are dealing with. From afar, it is not all that difficult to confuse a wasp and bee. With similar colouring, similar habits and a fear of being stung, it is no wonder that these two pests are often mistaken for one another. The trouble here is that bee populations are dwindling and should be preserved. Instead of taking a chance on accidentally harming bees, make sure to contact experienced pest control services before reaching for insecticides.
When you want the best results for your property, look no further than a Toodaloo technician. Choosing local services means quick action, competitive rates and accessible after-care.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently.
