Wasps enter the structure through a void, crack or crevice. You may or may not see their nest. Wasps can enter through a hole under the siding, a hole in block foundations, a crack in the side of your house, into the overhang of the building, an opening into the attic space, etc. The wasps are usually treated with a residual dust pesticide that kills the nest and any returning wasps. Wasp nests that are visible are treated with a residual pesticide and removed. Arrow pest control will treat and, when possible, remove the nests. We guarantee that they will be gone and will not rebuild the nest.
Three of the most common pest wasps in Minnesota are the Yellow Jacket, Baldfaced Hornet, and the Paper Wasp. Wasps have a slender body with a narrow waist. Wasps capture insects that they bring back to the nest and feed to their brood. Wasps in late summer and fall will change their diet to carbs and sugars. Some wasps become attracted to our outdoor activities when human food is present. Yellow Jackets, Baldfaced Hornets, and Paper Wasps build paper nests made up of chewed wood fibers and saliva. Yellow Jackets commonly make nests underground, in hollow trees, bushes, wall cavities, other voids in buildings and houses. Baldfaced Hornets commonly builds nests in trees, bushes, on the side of walls usually under an overhang, or under a deck. Paper Wasps usually build a nest in a protected area such as under a deck, in the hollow of an over hang, and under an overhang. Paper Wasps crawl in cracks to get in the eaves, the attic space, sheds, walls, roof vents, etc.
