Redmond Wasp Control Experts

Redmond’s location, its climate, and the recreational opportunities it offers have made it one of the fastest growing communities in the state. While outdoor adventures play a big part in the day-to-day life of residents, there is one particular type of pest that can put a damper on these types of activities. Wasps come in a variety of breeds and can do enormous harm, both in their behavior and in their sting. Often the mere sight of one of these creatures will prompt a hasty retreat by adults and children alike, lessening your enjoyment of your property. At Pointe Pest Control, our Redmond pest control experts offer safe, eco-friendly solutions for eliminating these stingers from in and around your home, allowing you to reclaim outdoor areas.

Types of Stinging Wasps in Redmond, Oregon

There are a variety of different types of stinging wasps and bees throughout Oregon, many of which can be found harassing picnickers and outdoor enthusiasts in yards, parks, and playgrounds throughout Redmond. Nothing can ruin your day quicker than having your child run to you with a wasp bite that occurred while playing near a hive on playground equipment or inadvertently getting stung yourself by a wasp that is lured to the sugary drinks you may be serving or the smell of a BBQ. Insect Identification warns that there are several types of breeds throughout the area that are known to be particularly aggressive stingers when either intentionally or unintentionally provoked:

  • Paper Wasps: As their name implies, these rely on scavenged bits of paper they find to build their hives around sheds or under household eaves. They are particularly pesky as they are also fond of inhabiting sitting yard equipment, such as grills or the joints in swing sets. They may take up residence while these items are unused, only to reveal themselves at your first picnic of the season.
  • Mud Daubers: While less likely to sting than other types of wasps, these large, intimidating pests can buzz around pools, ponds, and sprinklers terrorizing your family and guests, while collecting mud and dead insects for nests they build over doorways, under eaves, and around outdoor areas, such as gazebos and picnic tables.
  • Yellow Jackets: One of the most instantly recognizable and justifiably feared types of wasps, these are drawn by fresh fruits, sugary beverages, grilled meats, and other outdoor picnic items. They build nests inside vacant areas with walls, porches, and decks, and a single hive can easily produce thousands of wasps. They are highly agitated by humans and will not hesitate to sting, which for many people can result in an allergic reaction.  
  • Bald-Faced Hornets: Equal to yellow jackets when it comes to being dangerously aggressive stingers, bald-faced hornets are often identified by the round, paper ball looking nests they build near sheds or porches and around trees or utility pools. Disturb one of these nests and you can expect to get stung dozens if not hundreds of times.

Protect Yourself when Dealing with Stinging Wasps

As changes in climate draw more yellow jackets and other stinging wasps to our area, Oregon State University warns that your first priority if you do notice a wasp nest on your property should be protecting yourself against being stung. Particularly if you have known allergies or have never been stung in the past, you will not want to risk the potentially serious reaction your body could have to the venom relayed through a wasp sting. Disturbing a hive or attempting to remove it improperly could trigger an attack so aggressive that it could put your life in danger.
