Professional Wasp and Hornet Removal For Your Home

How Orkin Canada Manages your Wasp or Hornet Issue


Your Orkin Canada technician will thoroughly inspect your property in order to identify the species of wasps or hornets in question. There are many species of hornets and wasps, each with different behaviours and nesting habits; knowing the species that have established themselves on your property is essential to providing effective treatment options. The timing of treatment and environmental conditions is crucial for effective control of wasp and hornet infestations.

Wasp Treatment And Removal Options

Aerosol Treatments

When dealing with exposed wasp or hornet nests, your Orkin Canada technician will treat the nest directly with a contact aerosol or foam aerosol treatment. Both aerosol treatments offer a targeted approach designed to eradicate the queen and eliminate the colony.

Dust Treatments

For wasp or hornet nests in voids or underground, the nest entrance is treated with a residual dust treatment. As the insects traverse to and from the nest they will walk across the residual dust allowing it to spread throughout the colony.

Wasp and Hornet Nest Removal

Once the queen has been removed, the colony will slowly collapse. In some cases, your Orkin Canada technician may elect to remove the nest to expedite things. This can be done by enveloping the nest with netting or plastic bags.  This is typically done during the early morning or late afternoon to ensure a large percent of the wasps/hornets will be inside the nest at the time of removal. Your Orkin Canada technician will then remove the nest from your property.

It should be noted that for some species of wasps/hornets, an inactive nest can act as a deterrent for future nest building in the same area.  In this case, it may be best to leave the nest in place once the population inside has been eliminated.
