Moses Lake is not only one of the most beautiful areas in Washington, if not the entire country, to live in, but it is also one of the most prosperous. With a lower unemployment rate than the national average, a lower cost of living than the rest of the country, and major employers such as Yahoo and Microsoft, it is no wonder so many people want to call Moses Lake home. Unfortunately, Moses Lake makes a great home for wasps, too, particularly in the hot summer months. If you have noticed these pests around your home, it may be time to contact a Moses Lake wasp control company.
Are Wasps Dangerous?
Wasps do not carry diseases in the same way that other pests, such as mosquitoes, do. However, that does not mean these creatures are harmless. Wasps are extremely territorial, and they can become very aggressive in just a matter of seconds.
Once a wasp has decided to create a nest around someone’s home or yard, many other wasps will come and help them create a giant nest. Sometimes, wasps will create multiple nests. Wasps are very protective of their nests and anyone that comes close may face an attack, during which the wasps swarm and may sting repeatedly. Wasps are not like bees. They do not lose their stinger or die after they have stung someone, allowing them to sting one person multiple times. This becomes an even bigger issue when the nest is located close to a door or other high traffic area of a home.
