Wasps are very common creatures that are found in home exteriors and can also come inside. These pests have a vicious sting and can affect humans as well as pets. The sting is very painful and can also have serious health consequences. As soon as these are spotted anywhere around the house it is very important to get rid of them quickly. There are many types of wasps, such as solitary wasp, paper wasp, bald-faced hornet and yellow jacket wasp. There are a number of methods used by Brisbane termite control services to eradicate the place from wasps and their nests.

If it is a solitary wasp that needs to be dealt with, it requires citrus oil extracts. These extracts kill solitary wasps quickly and get the premises free of such problems. Paper wasps are generally classified as pests only when they create a nest in an area which is densely populated by humans. The best way to get rid of paper wasps is to use pressurized spraying of wasp killer on the nest to kill the entire bulk in one time. Their nests are very much in the same structure as that of a honeycomb nest.

It is best if the treatment is done at night and the nest is left overnight to enhance the complete effect of the treatment. The bald faced hornets are the most fearsome looking wasps that live in large aerial nests. One is most susceptible to an encounter with a bald faced hornet between dusk and dawn. A pressurized wasp killer is the most effective method to deal with bald faced hornets. However, a certain distance needs to be maintained when dealing with them to avoid any mishaps. When the wasp killer is sprayed, it must be insured that it is done directly inside the entrance of the nest. Another type of wasp is the yellow jacket wasp.

These wasps are quite territorial and aggressive and can be easily identified by their thick waists and bright yellow patterns. They are known to protect their nests with their lives and do not hesitate to bite and sting their way to ensuring complete safety. Their sting is mildly poisonous and burns a lot. The way to get rid of yellow jacket wasps primarily requires enough poison to be pumped into the nest to counter the wasps' poison.

Stings from wasps may not only give you a feeling of discomfort but can also expose you to more serious health threats. Hence, it is important to ensure that all premises are checked for such dangers. Pest inspections are well equipped to detect any traces of wasps and to deal with them accordingly.
