As the cool brisk fall weather sets in, a skirmish of sorts is begun by homeowners; against yellowjackets, paper wasps, and hornets. These wasps possess a habit to turn combative during the fall, as their eating regimen progresses from the proteins and carbohydrates they adore amid the spring and summer, to sugar-rich foods such as ripe fruit and syrupy soda throughout the fall.
Fall Wasp Wars
Wasps have an impulse to turn combative throughout the months of the fall season. One wasp colony might include over 10,000 female worker wasps whose lone ambition is to look for nutrients to feed the colony. Wasps in quest of these sugary sweet nutrients shift potentially combative, wrecking outdoor activities and harassing backyard barbecues. The result? Awful stings, sometimes repeatedly, on occasion when human interaction is present. These painful wasp stings many times happen when they perceive you as a threat, walking barefoot close to food, or swallowing wasps that have stumbled into beverage cans.
To make matters worse, wasps possess a built-in cautionary system that alerts other wasps when an emergency is present. All you have to do is simply swat at a yellowjacket, and a cautionary pheromone is discharged that leads out a battalion of wasps to blitz the intruder.
It’s necessary to indicate that throughout most of the year, wasps retain to themselves and are mainly harmless; only exhibiting defensive behavior when their nests are endangered. At any moment of year, it is favored that homeowners feuding with fall wasps not do so on their own. It’s urged to phone the cooperation of a pest management expert.
Such was the situation when Knoxville’s own Anna, contacted Bulwark Exterminating to help out with her wasp problem. Here’s the glowing review she left Bulwark on Yelp:
Excellent Yelp Review For Servicing Fall Wasps
Yesterday we had a swarm of yellow jackets, wasps and bees surround our home. Tonight is Halloween! I was frantic!
I called the pest company that has been servicing this house and they told me they would have to charge me extra to come out and help and then “I believe” they accidentally hung up on me.
I called Bulwark Exterminating and they were so nice and understanding. He understood what was going on. I told him I needed to also sign-up for quarterly service since I was going to be cancelling the service with my current company who couldn’t help me.
They had a technician, Orlando Council, at my house by 7:30am!!! The next morning! I couldn’t believe it! I was sooo happy to see him sitting outside my house waiting for me!!
I walked him through our house inside and outside. He immediately got to work finding the source of the insects and did a full house extermination inside and outside for me.
We are also currently using this company for another house we have.
They didn’t charge me extra. They didn’t charge me that usual LARGER first bill. He did so much to help us. He solved our insect problem.. so we can have a safe and happy Halloween tonight.
I can’t tell you how truly thankful I am… that they cared so much for us, to take the extra effort to add us to their already busy schedule… And not charge me extra or an “arm and a leg” for it!
They only charged me my regular quarterly fee.
Bless them! Orlando – you are the man!!!!
