How To Tell If It's A Wasp Nest

Wasps come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most common types of wasps in Austin are:

  • Yellow jackets
  • Cicada killers
  • Mud daubers
  • Yellow wasps
  • Red wasps
  • Brown wasps

Each of these species builds nests in different ways. Yellow jacket wasps build nests out of chewed-up pulp in trees, and bushes, on the side of buildings, and in holes in the ground. Cicada killers live alone in holes they dig into the ground. Mud daubers build mud tube apartments on the side of trees, buildings, and other structures. While red and yellow paper wasps make gray paper-like nests that hang under the eaves of homes, decks, or garages. To identify what kinds of wasps are present on your property, have our team pay you a visit. We will look around and help you spot and address active nests.

How Dangerous Is It To Have Wasps In My Yard?

Wasps are not as aggressive as many people make them out to be. Many species are docile unless directly threatened. This includes mud daubers and sweat bees. The species you should worry about are yellow jackets. Of all the wasps in our area, these are the most likely to attack with little reason. Yellow jackets become especially aggressive during the fall as they prepare their queens for winter. If you have an allergy to wasp venom, it's important to be extra careful around all wasps. Keep reading to learn about our professional wasp control options to remove these pests from your property.

Why You Shouldn't Try To Get Rid Of Wasps On Your Own

Although wasps are docile in most situations, they become aggressive anytime a creature or human threatens their home. If you are not careful when trying to remove a nest from your property, these pests will attack. Yellow jackets are able to move at six to seven miles per hour and will sting you multiple times while you are running away. Enough stings, even for a person without allergies, can be medically threatening. Avoid this danger by hiring a professional to deal with nests on your property. At Aries Pest Control, our team has the safety equipment needed to avoid painful stings and will eliminate any and all wasps that might cause your trouble.
