Protecting Snohomish Residents From Wasps, Hornets, & Stinging Insects

Stinging insects are a problem for home and business owners across the state of Washington every summer. Wasps, hornets, mud daubers and yellow jackets are aggressive, territorial insects with stings that can be extremely painful and even dangerous to the people on the receiving end of them. On the other hand, their carpenter bee cousins can be incredibly destructive if they’re allowed to burrow into your homes walls and foundations.

However, you should never try to handle a stinging insect infestation on your own. Approaching a wasp or hornet nest without the proper tools, equipment, and knowledge required to eliminate it safely and effectively can mean putting yourself in harm’s way - and due to the general ineffectiveness of many over the counter pest control treatments, you might not even end up completely eliminating the infestation.
