Flying Insects that Sting!


Most social wasps can mobilize the entire nest for defense. This can be highly dangerous to humans and animals. Their alarm pheromone tells all that the nest is under attack. Same pheromone is used to indicate prey as well such as bees.

A Bald-Faced Hornet aka Paper Wasp Nest in a Tree in Toronto.
This nest was dropped in a bag with some insecticide and taken away from the property.

It is the scene of an Entry Point of a Yellow Jacket Wasp. It is located in the bottom left of a window exterior. To exterminate the infestation, it has been dusted with an insecticide dust. Wasps would come into contact with this insecticide dust upon their entry and exit each and every time. In due time, the entire wasp nest hidden inside will collapse and die off.

Wasps Extermination Technique and its Advantages:

We utilize the most effective insecticide Spray and Fog agents available from the leading pesticides manufactures. These pesticide are highly effective and contain most powerful active ingredients. We employ the Spray and Fog technique to Control, and Exterminate the Wasps infestations.

Some of the Characteristics of the Spray and Fog technique are:

  • It is the best option when there is no Bait available for a given Pest. A targeted application of Control Agents in selected areas of the structure is undertaken. In cases of high infestations, spraying upon the pests produces a spectacular knock down.
  • Areas that are targeted are the nesting and foraging activities areas of the Pest.
  • Wasps are affected by the insecticide active agent when they come into contact with the treated surfaces.
  • Wasps would be exterminated by getting the Active Ingredient into it’s biological system via contact. An affected pest may also prove to be a source of secondary poisoning for other members.
  • The Insecticide Spray method results in gradual, almost fool-proof and guaranteed removal of these pests.

Client’s Preparations for Insecticides Application:

  • Client is required to prepare areas to be treated with insecticide spray application.
  • Client is required to leave the property during the application and stay out for further 2 hours after the application.

Our exterminators will inspect the structure for points of vulnerabilities that may facilitate future infestations or conditions that may be helping the Wasps to flourish. It will be up to the property owner to act on the recommendations.

Specific Notes on Spray or Fog Application:

Spray may be Water-Based or of the Emulsion type. Even though it would not stain or damage surfaces, it may be noticeable as a thin film of light color. The film may also have oily characteristics. If it is found on any surfaces that are used by people or pets, then it should be cleaned away at the earliest. For further information, please, see our Pesticides and the MSDS page.

Expected Results and Outcome of the Treatment:

In about 3-5 weeks, all Wasps would have been eliminated having directly or indirectly been exposed to the insecticide sprayed. Gradually Wasps would simply cease to exist. It remains possible that some Wasps may expire near human living spaces.

At Quest Pest Management Inc., we have the highest success rate of complete elimination of Wasps with one treatment alone.

Prior to carrying out treatment for Wasps, we will do an inspection or survey of the property to determine the extent and scope of the infestation. In doing so, we will also obtain information from people present on site.
