Why are WASPS In My House? Fayetteville Georgia Termite and Pest Control

Have you ever had wasps getting inside your home and you couldn’t figure out where they came from?  Every once in a while we get a call from someone who has wasps that continually get inside their home and it is usually one of the two or three common entry points that allow them inside.

It’s one thing to have a single wasp get inside your house, but to have a few wasps every day getting inside is a different story.  A single wasp inside can simply fly through a door when the door is open for a few seconds too long, but when you have multiple wasps a day getting in it becomes more of a problem.  Most of the time when we are dealing with bugs and pests we focus on patterns rather than single insects.  If you see a single spider, it may just be a single spider and not a big problem.  The same thing goes for roaches, stink bugs, centipedes and even wasps.

This video highlights one of the places wasps can gain access to the inside of your home and become a particular nuisance.  These wasps are fairly contained inside the vent hood grease filter, but a few did escape into the room and cause some concern in this kitchen.  If you are like most people, its hard for you to stand still and not swat, duck or wince when a wasp or other flying, stinging insect is buzzing around your face.  The good news is that unless you are near their nest, wasps are usually not very aggressive and your chance of getting stung is low.  That said, we know you want the wasps out of the house.

Velvet Ant is a Beautiful Creation – Fayetteville GA Pest Control and Termite Protection

Have you ever seen one of THESE?  Velvet Ants are one of the beauties in the insect world of Georgia.  We run across these creatures every once in a while out in the fields when we are doing other work, and its always a joy to see something we don’t get to see every day.  These Velvet Ants are actually parasites on certain species of ground dwelling wasps where they actually lay their eggs on the larvae of a few other species of wasps as a food source for their own larvae.

Once they develop into adults, they will eat plant nectar and consume water for hydration, but their parasitic behavior stops.

If you see one of these beautiful creatures . . . enjoy watching it, but LEAVE IT ALONE!  Their sting is apparently excruciating, but I thankfully wouldn’t know first-hand . . . and I don’t plan to experiment just to have first hand knowledge.

This is one of those insects you don’t need to worry about controlling.  They are solitary, and have no workers or colony to treat.  They are also so tough that entomologists often have a difficult time piercing their hard exoskeleton with a pin when mounting them on an ID card.

If you find one of these roaming through your yard and have a question about it, call Ennis Exterminating at 770-716-0867 and ask for me, Glenn Laney. I’ll be happy to speak with you any time!
