Wasps prefer to live near orchards or vineyards, but do show up in other places.Wasps are the pests who like to crash our picnics and send us running inside on nice summer days. Wasps can often be found hovering around garbage bins and rotting fruit. They invite themselves to our picnics because they extremely attracted to our sugary drinks and desserts. Sugar has been shown to increase their lifespan and benefit their reproductive health.
Wasps have yellow and black stripes running down their bodies and grow to be 1.6 cm long. Its important to distinguish between a wasp and a bee because unlike bumble bees, a wasp can sting you multiple times. They hang their paper nests around homes and in garages. These paper nests can be found hanging under eaves, in attics, above doorways, and under tree branches. ProActive technicians remove all reachable nests each time out. This not only reduces the amount of wasps in and around your home, it also improves the appearance by eliminating the hanging nests.
