A Yellow Jacket wasp is one of the most common types of wasp in North America. These wasps are characteristically black and yellow though their vivid colors may vary by region. wasp nestWasp Nest Yellow Jackets are responsible for pollination of flowers, trees, crops, and much more. Unlike Honey Bees a Yellow Jacket can sting multiple times. Many humans are allergic to wasp venom and are in need of medical attention after being stung. A Yellow Jacket can swell in numbers and it is not uncommon to have a population of over 4000 Yellow Jackets.

Bald Faced Hornets are one of the most aggressive types of hornet. The Bald Faced Hornet is also one of the most common hornets in Ontario so there is a high demand for wasp control services.

While they are predatory they are still responsible, in part, for pollination. Learn how to get rid of hornets with the help of ICU Pest Control services in Ontario.

Due to their aggressive nature and their affinity to nest near humans it is important to learn how to get rid of hornets. ICU Pest Control offers superb pest control services in and around Hamilton.

  • Regular monitoring will help pick up on wasp and/or hornet activity in your area allowing for wasp treatment before they establish themselves.
  • Sealing all cracks and crevices provided the wasps are not using the area as sealing up cracks and crevices too early can result in the wasps and/or hornets chewing their way out and most of the time finding exit inside your home.
