Wasps & Hornets: Winged Pests That Sting

Wasps and hornets are common in Victoria, especially during the hot Summer months. Wasps are especially a nuisance because they are aggressive and can nest close to any residential home. Although wasps are an important part of our ecosystem, it is no fun when you’re overrun by them and, for some, a single sting can lead to life-threatening situation, especially for the people who are allergenic to venom. We have three common species in BC, the Yellowjacket, Paper Wasp and the Bald-faced Hornet. These wasps and hornets can hang their nests from branches, roofs, and so they are often visible.


Effective Wasp Control in Victoria

Unlike honeybees, wasps including paper wasps can be aggressive and potentially dangerous. We strongly urge caution around them, especially if you see a nest. As wasp control experts, we strongly recommend against trying to remove a wasp’s nest by yourself and you should stay away from most over-the-counter pesticides as well. They can anger wasps without being very effective at eliminating them. A wasp nest can be the home to up to 5,000 wasps and if you don’t get all of them, you can be in danger, and will probably only make your situation worse.
