Soak Up the Sunshine, but Safeguard Against Stings

Wasp & Hornet Control in New England

New Englanders may be quick to bask in summertime sunshine as soon as the season arrives -- but, unfortunately, so are stinging pests like wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets.

There’s nothing quite like the sharp sting of a wasp or hornet to put a damper on spring or summertime fun.

These stinging pests are quite at home in New England and are quick to nest in and around your property, most often out of sight. Unlike honey bees (which can pack but one punch), wasps and hornets can deliver more than one sting, making them particularly unpleasant to tangle with.

Where Wasps & Hornets May Be Hiding

Wasps and hornets build nests in protected areas, where their hives will be sheltered from the elements. Eaves, gutters, under railings and rafters, are just a few places where you might unwittingly uncover a wasp or hornet nest.

Dangers of Having Wasps & Hornets on Your Property

As if suffering a sting -- or multiple stings -- wasn’t reason enough to eradicate wasps and hornets from your residence, the nests themselves can cause minor structural damage to your property if left undisturbed.

Our Wasp & Hornet Control Process

Although our team is always willing to remove a single wasp or hornet nest, we recommend prevention plans that cover you and your home all season. Various species of wasps and hornets construct their nests at different times during the year, which is why the one-off removal approach isn’t as effective as comprehensive preventive measures.

By opting for the JP Pest Services prevention plan, you’re also provided with our on-call service, in case you encounter a nest or nests elsewhere on your property during the season.

It started out with a mouse problem, then a bat in the attic, then carpenter ants,  then carpenter bees. We have the quarterly service, and I am grateful that you always come so quickly.
