Tampering with an active wasp nest can be very dangerous. When feel threatened wasps will swarm and attack. Wasps build their nests in trees, under roofs of buildings and other shady and secure places. These nests can hold anything between hundred to a thousand wasps. It is usually towards the end of the summer season that the wasp nest and colony will be its biggest in size and number. The larger the nest, the more difficult it is to remove it. It is; hence, better to remove a wasp nest as soon as you notice it. There are various species of wasps, and it is best to understand the species that has infested your property before attempting any extermination procedures.

A female wasp tends to produce eggs that are unfertilized and these eggs eventually develop into male wasps. The male wasps then breed with other female wasps who will go on to become queens of their respective colonies. Every colony of wasps will have one queen and the worker wasps will be in charge of taking care of the larvae produced by this queen. Wasps feed various food sources such as vegetables, fruits and insect larvae in order to excrete a paper-like material that is used for building the wasp nest. This material later on hardens and becomes strong enough to hold hundreds of wasps in it. The nest of a wasp is quite similar to that of bees. It comprises of tiny sections or compartments that hold the larvae, until they grow and become wasps.

Removing a wasp nest is not an easy task and it is best to contact professional wasp removal agents to help you with this task. If you try to remove a wasp nest on your own, without the required equipment or gear, you are likely to get stung by the wasps.


Wasps build nests on walls and ceilings, inside walls, inside siding and soffits and can damage structures. While they are mainly feared for their sting, wasps can also create an unpleasant sight with their nests. If you have wasp nests in or around your office buildings, it doesn’t create a very positive impression on customers and clients. You will also need to be wary of the potential employee injury claims made by employees, due to being stung or injured at work. The sight of a wasp nest is enough to arouse anxiety among humans and this poses as a distraction to employees at work. Wasps build their nests close to food sources. In order to avoid a wasp infestation, you need to ensure that trash cans and other such food sources are kept tightly sealed or covered.

Fortunately, while wasp infestations may be difficult to get rid of, but is definitely not impossible. So leave it to the professionals to eradicate wasps from your property and keep your home and office safe.

Wasps are attracted to sweet smells and will build usually their nests on tree branches or inside rotting wood, in gardens, or near open trash bins. They even tend to surround or attack humans who wear strong perfumes. Wasps can sting more than once. Their stings cause reddening of skin and rashes. If you are allergic to wasp stings, you could also develop some serious temporary or permanent health problems. The more severe allergic reactions to such wasp stings include dizziness, nausea, swelling and a constant itch. If you notice any adverse skin reactions to wasp stings, we would advise you to visit a doctor and get it looked at immediately. Insecticide treatments by licensed exterminators should not be a health concern. All wasp treatments are performed on the exterior of structures and are localized only to the area of the nest. A live nest with aggressive wasps and hornets should be more of a health concern than a pest management program.

These are the types of flying, stinging insects that belong to or are related to the wasp family of insects and can be found in and around the Toronto area.

The yellow jacket wasp measures 10 to 16 millimeters in length. Yellow jackets have many differences when compared to bees. The yellow jacket’s body is much thinner and has far less hairs. Their elongated wings approximately the same size as their body and fold laterally when the insect is at rest. A queen yellow jacket starts a fresh nest by constructing a small paper nest where she places the very first batch of eggs. After hatching, these eggs have been fed by the queen till they are ready to pupate and grow to mature yellow jackets. The fertilized females can survive the colder winter months by hibernating. The male yellowjackets and workers will die off.


The body of the bald-faced hornet has a black body and a white face. Bald-faced hornets are larger than most yellow jackets, with workers ranging from 15 to 20 mm or more. Bald-faced hornets are most active during the day and usually build their paper nests hanging from tree branches, overhangs and soffits. A colony begins in spring, when a queen lays a single egg inside each cell as she begins to build her nest. A bald-faced hornet nest can grow to be as large as a soccer ball in only under a few months. Males and workers die off in the winter while fertilized females l hibernate during the colder months.


There are many species of paper wasps but they all share similar characteristics. Their bodies are slim and is dark in color with some yellow coloration. Their nests are made by combining organic material and saliva and resembles paper hence the name paper wasp nest. Their stings are also venomous and can be very painful.


Mud daubers are a type of wasps that create their nests using mud. They longer than paper wasps and usually their size ranges 1/2 to 1 inch long. Mud daubers are solitary. They start to get active during spring months when they begin building their nests. After finishing the mud nest, then start to catch spiders or insects that are put into every mud nest hole to feed their larvae.


Carpenter bees resemble bumble bees. Carpenter bees make their nests by digging tubular holes in wood surfaces. They make their nests in wood that is not treated and not covered by bark. They partner, feed on pollen and nectar, go back to their own gallery to overwinter and then emerge next spring. They do not eat wood but feed on plant pollen and nectar. While only females are capable of stinging they can display aggressiveness when they feel their nests in under threat.



During the Summer and early Fall months wasps become more active. Wasps are also known to keep away other pest stinging insects from your garden or backyard, as they prey on such smaller insects. But when these flying and stinging insects infest your property, you would definitely want to get rid of them due to the dangers they can pose to people and pets. Wasps build their nests after they invade an area in the warmer seasons and this is when they breed and start their colony, posing a threat to all those around.

Unlike bees, wasps can sting multiple times. This could lead to sever swelling of the skin and in some cases serious allergic reactions. Wasps may not sting if they are left alone. However, if they feel even remotely threatened, they will not hesitate to sting their host.

Wasps only build and use their nest for one season. Once their season is over and all the wasps perish, the new queens will go on to then build their own colony with a new nest in the nest summer season. Until then, these wasps hibernate. The same nest will not be used twice. It is also a well-known fact that wasps do not build their nest in close proximity to another wasp colonies nest.

During the winters, wasps hibernate and after the winter is over they look for cold and shady places to build their nest. Most homes and corporate office buildings serve well for this purpose and hence wasps infest such properties. If you notice the start of a wasp infestation, you can get rid of the nest with a little precaution. However, if you notice that the nest has been built to quite an extent and you can see a number of wasps on or around it, you would rather contact professional help.

What to Expect After a Sting

Wasps, bees, and hornet often sting, especially when provoked. Bees, in particular, must feel threatened before they sting. When a bee stings, it is a last resort because the bee loses the stinger and dies shortly thereafter. Wasps, on the other hand, can repeatedly sting without any repercussion.

Receiving a sting from a wasp, bee, or hornet can cause discomfort, yet most people are fortunate enough to recovery rather quickly. Fortunately, there are usually not long-term complications. However, you should expect a reaction of some kind, which may range from mild to severe. People who are allergic to wasps, bees, or hornets are likely to experience a severe reaction.

Knowing what to expect after a sting and how to handle it can help you find comfort and relief. It is also important that you understand the reactions you might have to a sting so you can identify warning signs of a severe reaction.

If you do not have any sting-related allergies, you will likely experience minor symptoms, which may include:

  • Sharp burning pain at and around the sting site

  • Redness and swelling at and around the sting site

  • Itching of the area around the sting site

You will notice that the area will raise so that it looks like a welt. As the skin expands and swells, you may also see a small white mark at the middle of the raised area. The white mark is where the insect injected the stinger. It can take several hours for the stinging, burning, pain, and swelling to subside.

If you are allergic to stings, you will notice an entirely different reaction. If you are allergic to stings, you may experience:

  • Swelling and redness that continues to increase over the next few days

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Anaphylactic shock

Anaphylactic shock can be deadly if you do not seek immediate medical attention. The symptoms of anaphylactic shock can include:

  • Severe swelling, particularly of the face, lips, and throat

  • Severe itching or hives that present themselves in areas other than where you were stung

  • Difficulty breathing/wheezing/gasping

  • Dizziness

  • Lightheadedness

  • A decline in blood pressure

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Stomach cramps

  • Racing heartbeat or a weak pulse

  • Loss of consciousness

Whether or not you have allergies to stings, you should seek the help of a professional to remove any nearby wasp nests. The presence of stinging insects can cause problems for you or someone else that visits your Toronto property.

If you are allergic to stinging wasps, bees, or hornets, make sure you call us immediately to handle the problem. We can remove wasp nests to ensure there are not more stinging insects anywhere near your home or place of business.

Treating a Sting

If you have a mild to moderate reaction to a wasp, bee, or hornet sting, it is usually treatable at home without having to take a trip to the emergency room. For mild reactions, make sure you do the following:

  • Was the sting site well with water and soap so you can clean out the venom

  • Place a cold pack against the sting site to help reduce pain and swelling

  • Keep the area clean so you can avoid the chance of developing an infection

  • Use an anti-itch cream to soothe irritation and itchiness so you do not irritate the sting site

  • Use over-the-counter pain relievers to counteract the pain associated with insect stings

Severe reactions will require the use of an EpiPen if you happen to have one. You should also make sure you call for emergency medical help immediately to receive the attention you need. If you do not have an EpiPen, make sure you seek emergency assistance quickly.

Keeping Wasps Insects Away

Although you should rely on the help of a professional service, there are a few things you can do to minimize the potential for a wasp infestation. For starters, make sure you do not provide access to food.

Remove any rotten, or even ripe, fruits and berries from your property. If you have fruit trees, pick the fruit as soon as it is ripe. The same goes for any berry bushes. Along the fruit to sit may attract wasps and other stinging insects. Do not allow fallen fruit to sit on the ground, either. It may rot, which will also attract stinging insects.

If you have any hummingbird feeders, do not hang them around your porch. Instead, hang them from trees out in the yard. If you hang feeders from your porch, it may also attract wasps, bees, and hornets in search of an easy meal. If you do not have any trees out in your yard, it may be best to remove hummingbird feeders entirely.

Use caulk to seal up cracks and cervices around your porch or deck. Wasps, bees, and hornets love to start their nests in cracks and crevices. By sealing up those cracks and crevices, you are making your porch or deck less accessible to stinging insects. If you follow all of the tips above, you can ensure that your Toronto home is far less attractive to wasps, bees, and hornets.

If you already have a nest on your porch or deck, give us a call. We will send someone to help you with wasp control quickly and effectively.
