How to Identify a Wasp
Wasps can sometimes be confused with other similar-looking insects such as ants or bees. Like their cousins, they are generally considered to be beneficial to the environment and are a great form of natural pest control. However, it’s important to be able to identify a wasp due to their sometimes aggressive and intrusive nature. If they decide to make your house or garden their new home, they can become a problem. Here’s how to identify a wasp and distinguish it from bees or other similar insects:
Signs of a Wasp Infestation
Locating a wasp infestation can be more difficult than finding a bee infestation. This is due to the fact that wasps sometimes build their nests underground or in high, lofty areas which are not always visible. However, if you carefully observe the insects or pay attention to the surrounding area, you can identify a wasp infestation.
Some signs of an infestation include an increasing presence of wasps in the area, humming noises coming from behind bushes or in trees, the existence of a nest under roof eaves, behind shutters, in garden sheds, and readily available food sources such as open food containers or garbage bins. You can also gauge the likelihood of a wasp infestation depending on the season or time of year. Wasps tend to emerge in the spring and their numbers rapidly increase during the summer.
If you notice any signs of wasp in your home or building or are suspicious of an infestation, we recommend that you contact our exterminators for wasp removal in Edmonton and the surrounding area.
