Wasps

If you suspect wasps have created a nest in or near your home or office, do not attempt to remove the nest without professional help. Stinging insects are the cause of more than half a million emergency room visits each year. Bites are especially common in the latter half of the summer when wasps prepare for winter sustenance.

Wasps can pose a considerable threat when they feel threatened. Home Hardware Pest Control uses special controls and specialized equipment to safely remove these threats from your space
