Avoid Stings this summer

Vespid wasps (paper wasps, yellow jackets, hornets) are the most dangerous species of stinging insects due to their painful stings which in rare cases can be fatal. If they feel threatened, wasps will attack humans in large numbers.  

Every fall, newly mated queen wasps will seek shelter in protective structures to build their nests. This can include the exterior or interior of your home. In the spring, the nest will grow and wasps can become a danger to humans. Eaves, soffits, and gutters on home exteriors are popular wasp nesting spots. Flowers and plant life attract them to yards, as do patios and other outdoor eating areas with crumbs or sticky soda spills that are not cleaned up. Garbage cans that are not properly covered and regularly emptied also attract wasps that are seeking sources food. Properties with abundant insects and spiders provide ample prey for both developing and mature wasps. 

As the temperatures warm up wasps will become much more active. If you begin to have a wasp problem this spring please give Certified Pest Control a call. Not only will you be serviced very quickly, but Certified Pest Control offers the courteous care that only a family owned and operated business can offer.
