Wasp nests are made from plant fiber and other cellulose material, mixed with saliva of the queen. Nests can be found around buildings on verandas, under eaves, ceilings, attics or in trees and shrubs. Several varieties of wasp build nests under ground.
Wasps feed on flies and other insects.
Method of Travel:
1. Eliminate fallen fruit and refuse which will attract wasps.
2. Seal holes and other potential sites may help prevent nesting.
Steps to control:
1. Wasps are drawn to sweet substances such as fresh fruit. Regulate the amount of fruit left outside.
2. Good, long lasting, low-toxic methods of insect control can be done with Knock Down Hornet & Wasp Killer or other Knock Down products listed below.
