Wasp species are categorized as social or solitary. As their name implies, social wasps live in colonies, which may number in the thousands. Within these colonies, female workers perform all duties within the nest. Solitary wasps live alone and therefore do not have a colony. They do lay eggs, but their eggs are left alone to hatch.
Some wasps are aggressive species and can sting when threatened. Unlike honey bees, wasps often are capable of stinging multiple times.
Bucksworth Home Services uses an integrated approach that employs a variety of effective and efficient methods to control wasps. Our integrated program includes using:
- Inspection – determining what is needed to provide an effective wasp control plan.
- Documentation – explaining the specifics of the overall control plan and the findings and results of, not only the initial inspection but scheduled follow-up services as well.
- Education – explaining the behavior, diet and habitat of wasps and how this information will be helpful to the homeowner.
- Selection of the best wasp control methods – traps, light modification, mechanical and insecticidal controls, physical removal
- Cultural controls – modifying the area around the home or business to reduce the number of sites that are suitable for wasps to nest.
- Exclusion – making it hard for wasps to get inside the structure.
- Sanitation – keeping the area clean and efficiently reducing access to the wasp’s sources of food.

Some wasps are predatory, while others are parasitic. Predatory wasps kill and consume other insects as well as other animals which they often feed to their larvae. Parasitic wasps typically lay their eggs in the bodies of living creatures like caterpillars or spiders. The larvae feed on the still-living host. Wasps can assist in the management of other pests, particularly in agriculture as biological control agents. Many wasps also feed on nectar from flowers and therefore function as pollinators.
