About this pest

Short Description of Wasps and Their Behavior:

Wasps are flying insects known for their distinctive narrow waists and smooth bodies. Unlike bees, wasps can sting multiple times and are more aggressive, particularly when defending their nests. They build nests from chewed wood fibers and are often found in eaves, trees, or underground. Wasps are beneficial to the ecosystem as natural predators, but their presence near homes can pose a significant threat.

Why You Might Be Seeing Wasps Around Your Home:

  • Food Sources: Wasps are drawn to sugary foods, ripe fruit, and proteins like pet food or trash.

  • Nesting Sites: They prefer sheltered locations like roof eaves, wall cavities, sheds, and trees.

  • Outdoor Activity: Outdoor eating areas, barbecues, and open beverages can attract wasps.

  • Weather Changes: During late summer and fall, wasps become more aggressive in their search for food.

How Moxie Treats for Wasps:

  • Inspection: Our skilled technicians conduct a thorough inspection to locate nests and identify the species of wasp.

  • Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the inspection, we develop a safe, effective plan to eliminate wasps using targeted treatments.
