How To Keep The Wasps In Longview Away From Your Home And Yard

Wasps are some of the nastiest types of stinging insects in Texas, capable of invading yards and posing risks to our health. Turning straight to the pros for safe and total nest removal is very important. 

At Gecko Pest Control, we provide pest control in Longview that protects your yard and home from stinging bugs all year long. 

Habits And Behaviors Of Common Wasps

Unlike bees, wasps tend to be more aggressive because most don't die after using their stingers. They use this defense mechanism to protect their hives, even if they build them on or around our structures. 

This territorial behavior makes wasp control far more difficult than other kinds of pest control, and it's why you should turn to professionals for prompt and safe removal of wasp nests if they have invaded your yard. 

Contact Gecko Pest Control to get wasp removal in Longview that you can count on. 

Common And Uncommon Symptoms Of A Wasp Sting

Everyone knows that wasp stings are painful, but not everyone is aware that larger health risks are associated with these encounters, too. Like bee stings, people can have allergic reactions to the venom found in all kinds of stingers—from yellow jackets to paper wasps. 

Unlike bees, these stinging pests tend to be less common, so most people who are allergic don't even realize it until after they are stung. An allergic reaction can cause severe swelling at the site of the sting, as well as hives that spread over the skin, even in areas far away from the injury.

To avoid getting stung, turn to experts for the removal of wasp nests and treatments that protect your yard from infestations. 

Five Naturally Effective Wasp Prevention Tips

Because of the risks wasps pose, people often want to know how to reduce the risk of wasp nests winding up in their yards. It's important to turn to pros for a complete breakdown, but here are a few of the best and most naturally effective prevention tips: 

  1. Landscaping: To build their nests, wasps need harborage points like tree branches and large bushes. Keeping your yard trimmed and managed can reduce these factors. 
  2. Crack Sealing: All kinds of pests can enter your home through small cracks or holes in exterior walls. Sealing up potential access points is crucial. 
  3. Doors & Windows: You also need to maintain window and door screens, which might develop tears that wasps can crawl through. 
  4. Food Sources: When eating outdoors, make sure to cover up any food that might attract wasps.
  5. Treatments: The best wasp prevention comes from early treatments that shield your yard from all kinds of seasonal pests. Contact wasp control experts like Gecko Pest Control to learn more.

"Ryan did a very thorough job in spraying around the house. He walked the exterior of the house with me to learn my specific needs. He was even very helpful to help move the humming bird feeders before this initial spray.  Daren was also very informative I’m explaining the services.  They were able to come out the day I called and were prompt arriving."
