Stinging insects like wasps are necessary for the ecosystem. They prey on caterpillars and other crop-destroying pests. However, they can be a nuisance when they build unsightly nests on the exterior of your home or businesses, and their stings can be painful or even fatal to those with allergies.
Leave the Stinging Insects to the Experts
Wasps and hornets are especially difficult to deal with as their nests are usually quite high. Even when their nests are within reach, they can be dangerous to remove without proper training and equipment. The phrase “Don’t stir up a hornet’s nest” is used with good reason as no one wants to be stung by angry hornets. At S.O.S. Pest Control in Penticton, we have the pheromone traps, safety gear and clothing necessary to safely deal with these troublesome insects.
