What are the Benefits of Newport Wasp Control?

Wasps may seem annoying when they will not leave you or your guests alone during your summer barbecue. However, wasps have many benefits. Having a wasp or two in your yard may eliminate insects, as these provide prey such as insects and bees, and wasps are also great pollinators, just like bees. Some research has even found that the venom of wasps may even help treat cancer. Still, if you have a wasp nest near your home, or multiple wasps have decided to invade your yard, you may not want to share your space with them. When you are dealing with far too many wasps, it is important to call a Newport wasp control service that can eliminate the problem, and keep it from coming back.

The Lifespan of Wasps

Most wasps live for approximately 40 days. During this time, they make nests by chewing plant materials and decaying wood and turning them into paper. Throughout the days of her life, the queen will create cells and lay eggs within them inside the nest. Meanwhile, worker wasps will hunt for food, namely insects and nectar from plants, and bring it back to the nest to feed the queen and the larvae.

It is not until late July or August that the wasps will leave the nest. It is at this time that the eggs within the nest have hatched and also left. Wasps become more aggressive during this time as they search for food and if you are dealing with them in your yard, you may find them particularly annoying at this time of year. Before attempting to get rid of them, it is crucial that you understand the biggest myths that surround wasps, and the benefits a Newport wasp control service can bring.

Are You Trying to Get Rid of Wasps? Wasp Nest Removal Myths

Throughout the years, many wasp nest removal myths have emerged, supposedly touting safe ways for homeowners to get rid of these nests on their own. Some of these are old wives’ tales while others are attributed to the many Internet sites that have purported them. Some of the most common myths about wasp nest removal techniques include:

  • Removing wasps at night is safe: Although it is true that wasps are less active at night, that does not mean that it is entirely safe to remove a nest during this time. As soon as the nest is disturbed, the wasps will emerge and they will feel quite threatened and become very angry, causing them to sting repeatedly.
  • Wasp traps work: If all you want to do is remove a few annoying wasps around your outdoor dinner table, a wasp trap may work. However, if you have an infestation of wasps, one trap alone will not work. Wasp traps are not made effectively enough to eliminate an entire colony. Instead, they will only trap a few. When you have more than that in your yard, you will need the help of a professional Newport wasp control service.
  • Artificial wasp nests work: Wasps are very territorial and they typically will not build a nest near another one near the same location. However, an artificial wasp nest will do nothing if wasps have already constructed a nest near your home. In order to work, artificial wasp nests must be hung very early in the season. Even then, you will need to hang dozens of them in order to prevent other wasps from building their nests nearby.
  • Burning wasp nests works: Due to the fact that wasp nests are made from paper-like material, it is natural to think that burning a nest will work. Unfortunately, burning a nest will not kill all of the wasps and the ones that survive are likely to sting you. Additionally, wasps need to attach their nest to something, usually a tree or a home. Of course, these structures are flammable and so, burning a nest in these locations can cause much more damage than the wasps alone will.

Instead of trying to remove wasps yourself, it is usually recommended to call a wasp control company when you have a problem.
