Banish Wasps and Stinging Insects

In the temperate months, Medicine Hat and Southern Alberta residents can expect to see an uptick in the presence of wasps and other stinging insects. While these pests can be a nuisance for some, they pose a more significant threat to others, especially individuals who are allergic to their venom. At On Guard Pest Control, we understand the importance of keeping your home and yard free from these potentially dangerous insects.

These pests can be particularly problematic for homeowners and businesses in Medicine Hat, and Southern Alberta, as they can quickly establish nests around homes, gardens, playgrounds, and commercial properties. In addition to being a nuisance, they can pose a severe risk to the health and safety of those in the vicinity.

The presence of wasps and other stinging insects can lead to several potential problems:

Painful stings:

Wasps and other stinging insects can deliver painful stings that can cause swelling, redness, and discomfort.

Allergic reactions:

For some individuals, a sting from a wasp, bee, or hornet can lead to a severe allergic reaction, potentially resulting in anaphylaxis, which requires immediate medical attention.

Structural damage:

Wasps, particularly those belonging to the species of wood-boring wasps, can cause structural damage to homes and other buildings. While these pests do not consume wood like termites, they create nests by burrowing into the wood of walls, eaves, and other wooden structures. Over time, this activity can weaken the structural integrity of the affected area, leading to costly repairs if left unaddressed. Moreover, if a wasp colony is allowed to grow within the walls of a building, the sheer weight of the nest and its inhabitants may also contribute to structural damage. It is essential to identify and address wasp infestations early on to prevent potential harm to your property.
