Wasp Control in Utah
The Pests that Always Crash the Party
Just when you were hoping for fireflies and lady bugs, look who comes to hover. Nothing ends a barbecue or pool party faster than a large swarm of hostile wasps. Even if there is only a small but incessant handful to keep at bay, who wants to spend their block party swatting wasps? That’s where Guardian Pest & Lawn comes in. With over 15 years of experience providing wasp control in Utah, there’s no job too big or small for our capable and qualified to handle.
A Wasp’s Favorite Past Times: Nesting & Stinging
Wasps are known for building their nests out of chewed up wood or mud—often in recreational common areas. Check under porch ceilings and beneath eaves and awnings. They also favor barbecue grills, hot tubs, pools, patio areas, and playground equipment.
When a wasp nest is disturbed or threatened, these little villains will not hesitate to defend it. Yellow Jackets, in particular, attack with vitriol and instantaneous stings. And while bees at least die after they’ve stung you, wasps come back to fire off another volley of stings. If bees are the insect version of a pump-action shotgun, wasps are an automatic rifle.
A Local Reality
While many cities and towns in Utah are known for their large wasp populations, Guardian Pest & Lawn brings years of experience locating these creeps and controlling the nuisance they present. Leave the eradication to the pros! We will thoroughly treat the swarm as a whole and safely remove the mothership-like nest.
Wasps carry a venom in their sting that is life-threatening to individuals with who are allergic to it. When multiple wasps attack with repeated stings, they can induce serious harm to both humans and animals.
Wasp Varieties in Utah
- Paper Wasps: One of the more common wasps in residential homes, paper wasps are known for their distinctively long dangling legs. They make their paper nests beneath eaves, under porches and decks, on top of door and window frames, as well as within the nooks and crannies of attics.
- Yellow Jackets: Known for their distinctive yellow and black colors, yellow jackets are the wasps that are angriest and most aggressive to humans. Yellow Jackets will build aerial nests, as well as ground nests, and sting repeatedly when threatened.
- Hornets: Hornets often build nests in trees and shrubs, utility poles, and sheds. While they are typically less aggressive than other wasp species, they still deliver a sharp and painful sting.
