Those wasps are not going anywhere. And while they are on your property they can cause danger to your family.
Why Wasps Are So Dangerous
Do you know why wasps can be worse than honey bees? Honey bees can only sting once, but wasps don’t have that same attribute and can sting you again and again. They are also easily provoked, even by accident. If you hit or smash a wasp, pheromones are released that will alert other wasps to attack you. Wasps are very aggressive when defending their colony and are more likely to attack when you are within 7-8 yards of their nest.
Wasps Can Cause Structural Damage
Wasp nests or hives can cause structural damage when they are built inside of your home. When lying on drywall, the nests or hives can cause the drywall to disintegrate. As the drywall disintegrates, more and more wasps will come into the structure leading to a dangerous situation.
Signs To Look For
Here are some signs your home may have been invaded by a wasp colony and are in need of wasp nest removal:
Best Time to Get Rid of a Wasp Nest
Any time that a wasp nest becomes a nuisance or a threat to your safety (or peace of mind) is the right time to remove the wasp’s nest. Towards the end of Summer, wasps, particularly yellow-jackets and hornets tend to become more aggressive as they are preparing their nests for winter, so stinging may become more likely even though the wasps were seemingly minding their own business earlier in the year. Late Autumn tends to be the safest time to get rid of wasp colonies because as the weather turns cooler, the queens and males mate and stay in protected areas during the winter. It may seem like you are no longer being pestered by the flying menaces, but they are actually just waiting to start the nesting cycle all over again in the spring.

Insulation Removal and Installation
Dead Animal Removal
We started out in 1997 as a full service pest control company. But as the demand grew and our skills became more proficient, we started offering insulation and rodent exclusion services in 2000.
The truth is many of our customers needed new insulation installed and their crawlspaces cleaned up after rodent infestations had ruined them. They also needed a company that could find the holes the rodents were using to enter the home and get those holes sealed. At that time there were no companies who offered those services. We realized we could make it easier on our customers by offering rodent elimination, clean up and exclusion services.
We put 25 years of rodent elimination experience to work by being the best choice for clean up and exclusion work as well. Who better to seal rodents out and clean up their mess than the people who are experts at getting rid of them in the first place?
Now all of our customers can put their trust in us to take care of the entire job. We were one of the first pest control companies to get started in the local insulation industry and we specialize in taking care of homeowners and their properties. Our first insulation jobs were our current pest control customers, and then our customer base quickly grew by word of mouth. As an owner I could see that people simply wanted someone to show up on time and do the work that was supposed to be done and that is how our business has grown, by treating customers the way we would want to be treated.
As a result, the business has grown considerably. We have become very knowledgeable about insulation as well as pest control and now work for a variety of fire and water damage restoration contractors, plumbers, electricians, roofers, heating and air conditioning contractors and remodeling contractors. All for the same reason; we show up and do what were supposed to do and we do it well. To this day, I have not seen a company that does a better job than we do. Some may do it as well, but I have not seen anyone do it better.
Our philosophy is simple: We strive for excellence. In our company meetings I tell my employees how we define excellence: “Giving the customer what they’ve paid for, from start to finish.” It is that simple.
No sales gimmicks or tricks. I’m a consumer like everyone else. I don’t like someone trying to sell me something I don’t need, so we don’t do it here. We will tell you what you need, not what we want you to buy. That’s why we don’t make our customers sign contracts or remain obligated. You can use us for one service or many. We leave the decision up to you.
We are a service based business not a sales based business. When a company is providing an excellent service then referrals and increased sales are a natural result.
Our mission is to grow our business by providing excellent service to all our customers.
We strive to meet our customers’ needs with our knowledge, skills, and hard work. We strive to earn their trust through our honesty, integrity and dependability.

“These guys were quick. They gave a good service with no problems afterward. When we need more work in the future we know who to call.”
“I have used Classic Insulation and Pest Control for a number of projects over the last eight years, including removing and replacing insulation in large apartment structures. They have consistently done an excellent job, staying on time and on budget. Other contractors, working on my properties, have commented on the quality of their work.”
“Classic Insulation removed all of the old insulation in both my attic and crawl space and re-insulated both with more modern materials. In addition they put down a new vapor barrier in the crawl space. I have had two other professional insulation people review the work and they both have said that it was one of the best professional jobs they had seen in a crawl space and attic. I have been very pleased with their work and the timeliness of the job. My house is over 35 years old. “
“I would strongly recommend using Classic Insulation And Pest Control. I received three different bids for putting insulation in my 1930’s home. The Classic Insulation team shined above their competition, from their front desk to the estimator, to the installation crew, their professionalism was impressive. Plus, we have saved approximately 30% on our heating cost. “

Are there small nests that are shaped like a plate or saucer? Likely paper wasps. Paper wasps are large (1-inch long), slender wasps with long legs and a distinct, slender waist. Background colors vary, but most western species tend to be golden brown, or darker, with large patches of yellow or red. Preferring to live in or near orchards or vineyards, they hang their paper nests in protected areas, such as under eaves, in attics, or under tree branches or vines. Each nest hangs like an open umbrella from a pedicel (stalk) and has open cells that can be seen from beneath the nest.
You need pest control because without it, your home and family are at risk. Pests can carry bacteria and expose your family to harmful diseases. Uncontrolled pests also can cause costly damage to your property. Pests do not simply go away on their own. You must take the proper steps to get rid of them. You should be in control, not those unwanted pests. Pest control is all about regaining that power and peace of mind.
In general, pest control treats common household pests under the broad categories of rodents, insects, and spiders. Rodents can include rats (roof rats and Norway rats) as well as mice (house mice and field mice). Insects commonly treated by pest control methods include ants, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, bumble bees, silverfish, earwigs, fleas, powder post beetles, pantry moths, drain flies, grain beetles, bed bugs, carpet beetles, and cockroaches. Some common spiders treated by pest control include aggressive house spiders, orb web spiders, hobo spiders, and brown recluse spiders. Of course, this is not an all-inclusive list. You should speak directly with a pest control professional to find out what they’re able to treat.
No, all pest control companies are not the same. Not everyone holds themselves to the high standards that we do here at Classic Pest Control. What makes us different from others is our attention to detail, our knowledgeable staff, our quality service, our honesty, integrity, and professionalism. We’re proud to have been the recipient of the Angi Super Service Award for 11 consecutive years. Not all pest control companies can say the same. We are veteran owned and operated, and this is a family business. Our family cares about your family.
Sometimes you see more bugs after pest control treatments. And you may question if the treatment is actually working because of this. Don’t worry. The extra activity actually is a sign that the treatment IS working. Not all pest control methods kill bugs on contact. But once the bugs have been disrupted by the treatment, they will become more active while they try to find a safer place. Once they either move out or die, you’ll stop seeing them. If you continue to see more live bugs once you’ve started treatment, be sure to notify your pest control company because something may have been missed or just not be quite right. Technicians are human, after all, and if there’s a problem, we want to fix it for you. At least, that’s our policy here at Classic Pest Control! We take care of problems, and we do it quickly.
The number of hours you need to stay out of your home after spraying for bugs depends on the pesticides and chemicals used. Sometimes this is two to four hours. Sometimes it’s up to 24 hours or more. If you or your family members have any underlying conditions that make you more sensitive to the pesticides and chemicals used, these time frames may be extended. This is absolutely a question you must ask your pest control provider. We recommend having this discussion when you schedule the service so that you’re fully prepared when the technician arrives. You should feel comfortable asking this question of any staff member who answers the phone or any technician who arrives at your home. At Classic Pest Control, we have a knowledgeable staff that you can trust with all of your questions.
The determination of how often you should do pest control in your home also depends on the treatment methods you’re using and the severity of your pest infestation. You may need treatments more often as you’re initially treating the problem. You may need pest control visits less often if your treatment methods are longer lasting. The goal is that your home is always protected. Your pest control provider can help you create a treatment schedule to keep your home and family safe from pests based on all of the particulars of your situation. Here at Classic Pest Control, our philosophy is that we’re a service-based business, not a sales-based business. That means we work with you to provide what you need, not what we want you to buy. We believe you deserve that respect. So how often you should do pest control in your home, is not a one-size-fits-all answer. It’s unique and specific to you.
