Common Outdoor Pests
Sometimes the inside of your home is safe from infestations, but every time you step outdoors you are assaulted by invaders. One of the best reasons for calling in the professionals, is we understand the invaders. We know insects, rodents, and spiders. We understand their life cycles and we know how to get them out of your yard. Here are a few common outdoor pests you might see around your home.
- Yellow Jackets: They look like a fat honey bee, with bright yellow and dark black lines. The difference between a honey bee and a yellow jacket is the stinger. When a honey bee stings you, it leaves the stinger in your skin and the honey bee dies. A yellow jacket on the other hand, doesn’t lose its stinger. In fact, a yellow jacket can keep on stinging you, over and over again. Yellow jackets love to build their nests underground. They love sprinkler boxes and old rodent dens. The difference between yellow jackets and other stinging insects is the aggression level. Yellow jackets are extremely aggressive and do not need a reason to sting you. Often, people get stung for no reason.
- Wasps: Like yellow jackets, wasps have a rapid repeat stinger. Wasps love to build their papery nests under the eaves of your home. Their aggression level increases during times of drought, and when the weather gets hot. You should never stand directly under a wasp nest and spray it with chemical. The chemical you are using to kill the wasps will rain down on your head and shoulders. Exposure to pesticides can make you extremely sick.
