Pest Control - Information about Wasps

Pest Extermination: Wasps


Most wasp species have two pairs of wings as well as a pinched waist, which is rather characteristic. Wasps vary in colours from metallic green and blue to black and yellow. Their size is also different with some species being a few millimetres long while others can get up to several centimetres.


When it comes to their behaviour, wasps can act both socially and solitarily – their behaviour being different within their species. Social wasps tend to live in large colonies which may amount to thousands. Social wasp species are the most common in the Metro Vancouver area. Solitary species do not have a colony, rather, they lay eggs which are then left to hatch on their own without any oversight.

Control & Prevention:

Identification of wasp species is highly important prior to the service approach. Social wasp species, which are the most common in Metro Vancouver region, are generally controlled using pesticides. The application of pesticides will eliminate active wasps and prevent the maturation of larvae, effectively destroying the targeted site and preventing the rebuild of the nest.
