While wasps are beneficial insects for the environment, an infestation of wasps can be unpleasant as well as dangerous. Wasps are most plentiful during the spring and summer, when it is common to see them throughout the daytime. Since wasps do offer certain benefits for the world around you, caution should be used when removing a colony from your premises.
Although their role in pollination is less active than that of bees, wasps do pollinate the flowers of any plants that they visit. More importantly, however, is the fact that wasps reduce the population of other insects by feeding on them. Both of these behaviours make it important to bring in an experienced professional to remove the wasps from your property safely so that they are not destroyed.
Wasps are attracted by strong odours emanating from compost, gardens, garbage, and trash. Rotting fruit beneath a tree is often responsible for drawing wasps into a certain yard rather than another one. Likewise, wasps are readily attracted to nest in rotting tree stumps and abandoned animal dens. In order to dissuade these pests from selecting your property over one located on another street, you should eliminate as many sources of attraction as you can. You can use the following strategies to achieve this task:
. Keep garbage and trash in a sealed container
. Picking up fallen fruit from trees
. Removing ripe berries from bushes
. Turning compost piles properly and storing them securely
. Remove rotting wood as soon as you discover it
. Fill in holes in the ground, including those made by animals
Due to the inherent dangers (stings and allergic reactions) of removing wasps on your own, your best option is to hire a professional to come in and remove the pests for you. Moreover, it is possible that your town has a local ordinance preventing you from destroying large colonies of wasps, so you might need to arrange for live removal services.
A colony of wasps usually moves into a yard that offers them a good place to build their nests. They'll look for hollowed out logs, abandoned rodent dens, or shady areas beneath a roof. Wasps are attracted by the smell of rotting food, particularly fruit. If wasps decide to move into your yard, you'll have to be careful not to disturb them. They can become aggressive if they feel threatened, so you should avoid getting too close to their nest. Hiring a specialist in wasp removal is the safest option for homeowners who might experience stinging bites that can lead to allergic reactions.

People who have allergies to wasps have a real concern when a wasp colony moves into their yard, making it important to handle removal quickly.

If you discover a wasp nest in your yard you might want to call in professionals experienced in pest control and removal in your area.
While it is normal for every homeowner to see a few wasps flying in their yard on an occasional basis, observing as many as a dozen or more could be an indication that wasps have moved into the neighbourhood. Figuring out whether or not they are in your yard or someone else's simply involves looking for the following signs:
. Loud buzzing noises coming from a specific location in your yard or home
. A swarm of wasps that appear several times a week in your yard
. A wasp nest somewhere on your property
Perhaps the best way to find where the wasps are located is to take a walk around your property at dusk when these pests are least active. Depending on the specific type of wasp living on your property, you might find their nest:
. In a mature tree
. Underneath the eaves of your home's structure
. In the attic
. In an abandoned rodent burrow
. In a hollow log
We have all seen the furry yellow and black striped bees flying around that buzz as they fly by to land on colorful flowers collecting nectar.
