What Do Wasps Look Like?

There are over 100,000 species of wasps, but the most common problem wasps in North Carolina are the Paper Wasp and the Cicada Killer.

Paper Wasp The Paper Wasp is yellow and brown striped with a slender 1-inch long body and a thin waist, tapered abdomen and long, trailing legs. Nests are round, gray, and papery hanging upside down from a narrow stalk.
Paper wasps typically build their nests in well-sheltered spaces including under eaves and roof peaks, underneath porches and decks, and inside grills and electrical boxes but may invade crawl spaces or attics.

Cicada Killer Cicada Killer wasps are known for their monstrous size; up to 2 inches in length, cicada killer wasps often cause alarm. However, these gentle giants are not easily provoked and rarely attack humans.
Solitary insects, these wasps nest underground in dry, soft soil where vegetation is sparse.


Paper wasps are aggressive when provoked and have a vicious sting.
Cicada killers are not easily provoked but when they are their sting is painful.

How Do You Get Wasps?

Wasps will build homes in any secure, well sheltered area they come across with good access to food. Unfortunately this often means a home owners property.

Hazards Of Not Treating Wasps

Reasons To Treat Your Wasp Problem Immediately

  • Wasps are aggressive and will sting multiple times if disturbed. This can cause a serious risk to people with allergies, possibly causing anaphylaxis and severe swelling.
  • While you may be tempted to do it yourself with some spray from the local hardware store, you run the risk of agitating the wasps and not killing them, instead causing them to swarm.

What To Expect From Our Treatment

Target The Source: First we identify and target the source of your pest problem with our custom treatment.

Inside Treatment: We then treat unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, trash areas, attics, wall voids, and even inside electrical sockets. Wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation, including residual powder, gel, and bait.

Outside Treatment: We create a protective barrier around your home using a granular base around the foundation. We then treat windows and doors, as well as under siding, to keep the pests out. We will also place a granular bait in your flower and mulch beds so that bait is taken back to any potential nests, destroying them.

For the past 10+ years we’ve helped protect over 200,000 homes. We are Orange County’s preferred Exterminator and Pest Control Company.
Let us help you!
