A perfect outdoor activity for you and your family is a visit to the Bush’s Pasture Park, right in the middle of Salem. Summer means fun, until the wasps descend. They love meat and sugar; the very things that make you enjoy an outdoor barbeque draw in the fliers. If you are getting attacked each time you walk out your front door, or every time you drink a soda pop in your backyard, you need Pointe Pest Control. This summer you can reclaim your back yard and win the war against wasps.
Paper Wasps and Yellow Jackets
Paper wasps for elaborate nests constructed of a cellulose and saliva mixture. Unlike honey bees, paper wasps have a rapid repeat stinger that can keep on releasing venom until you kill it. Paper wasps build their nests in areas protected from wind and rain. You will find them on the eaves of your home and in dense vegetation. They become aggressive when it is hot and dry. If you get close to their nest, a single wasp can release an attack pheromone. In seconds, you will be surrounded by a whirlwind of angry stingers.
Yellow jackets make paper wasps look friendly and gentle. They have fat bodies and will attack without provocation. The have powerful mandibles used to shear flesh. If you make one mad, it will use its stinger to inject venom and use its powerful jaws to bite you. It is common for yellow jackets to make their nests underground in old rodent dens. If you have an old couch siting outside, they will use that as well.
