Proper Removal of Wasp Nests in Elmhurst IL

Wasp Extermination ServiceBeing stung by a bee, wasp or hornet is a painful experience and can be life threatening for people with allergies. Reduce the risk today, take precautions when outdoors and make sure all wasp nests and beehives are properly managed. Because knowing how to get rid of wasps, bees and hornets is crucial to avoid risks of stings, it’s always a better idea to call a pest control professional.

The most dangerous species of stinging insects are the vespid wasps: yellow jackets, paper wasps and hornets. The yellow jackets have black antennae and short legs. Paper wasps have longer legs in comparison to the yellow jackets. And the hornets have white markings on their head and thorax.

The Most Common Signs of Wasp Invasion

Yellow jackets build nests that are surrounded by a papery covering and can be generally found within walls or cavities in the ground. When disturbed, they are quite aggressive and can attack in large numbers.

Paper wasps build open and exposed nests that resemble an upside-down umbrella. The nests can get quite large late in the season. If you approach them and the adult wasps sense any danger, you might get a sting.

Bald faced hornets build nests that are covered in a papery shell – in natural cavities like tree stumps or in tight spaces within buildings.

Delicate Wasp Treatment and Removal of Their Nests

The most appropriate way to get rid of wasps and hornets is to eliminate their nest. Common sites for nests include under the eaves of the roof, behind shutters, in attics or in wall voids. Removing the nest is a dangerous and delicate task that requires proper tools and techniques. It’s really not advisable to try this on your own.

Usually we need only one visit, starting with inspection of the species, treatment of all nests to carefully eliminate the wasps and then safe removal of the nest away from your property. We also try to modify the area around your house to ensure there are no suitable sites for new wasp nests in the future. We cover all ZIP codes in Elmhurst, Addison, Lombard, Franklin Park, Melrose Park, Hinsdale, Westchester and Oak Brook.

    I’ve found a suspicious dead bug on the bed. Quickly booked a same day appointment with Be Safe to come and inspect the whole house. I had to take a day off work but it was worth it. The team came on time and promptly got down to business. Thankfully they couldn’t find any evidence of bed bug ...

    Turns out just because you don’t have pets, you can still have a flea problem. Our neighbors gassed their house and forced fleas into our yard. So we decided to give this company a try. They inspected the perimeter, pointed out the problem areas and treated them. So happy with their work, highly effective!

    Excellent service all around. We had a mole issue in our backyard garden. After failed home remedy attempts I contacted this local pest control company. They were very helpful, patient and reasonable throughout the whole process. They used traps and baits to capture the moles and definitely were worth the expenses. Good job guys!

    My husband contacted BeSafe after many attempts and stings trying to remove an underground yellow jacket wasp nest that was in our direct path to the front door. Able to schedule for the same day and take care of the problem. Highly recommended when you have wasp nest problems to solve ;-)

    We had a great experience with these guys. A month ago I noticed some rat droppings in the attic and called “Be Safe” immediately. Being professional and highly responsive, they did a survey on the exterior, interior and possible open access points to the house. All was fixed quickly and a few weeks later there’s no sign of any ...
