FAQ

WHY SHOULD I USE VESPRO INSTEAD OF A LARGE PEST CONTROL COMPANY?

DIFFERENT APPROACH - 

  Based on what my customers have told me, the other companies only use an insecticidal dust and do not physically remove the nests. This can be effective, but a complete removal is a 100% guarantee the problem will be resolved the first time and offers the fastest result. I ALWAYS opt for this as approach #1. I have an unsually quick technique that works incredibly fast and the nest is eradicated in seconds once located! 

UNMATCHED PRICING -

   My customers have also told me some quotes they have received. My prices have been anywhere from 50% all the way to over 75% less than quoted by other companies. I also offer 50% off each additional nest removal after the first (at full price), if there is more than one nest at time of visit. Call today for the most up-to-date pricing.

PROMPT AND PROFFESIONAL -

   As a husband and homeowner myself, I know fully how important your time is as well as your home. I will always respond as soon as possible to calls/texts and in most cases can perform the work the same day quickly and professionally so you and your family can feel safe again and get back to enjoying your day!

WILL I STILL SEE YELLOWJACKETS AFTER YOU COMPLETE THE REMOVAL?

  Yes. Even though the nest will be gone (if possible to access), there will still be returning foragers that were not inside the nest during removal. This is totally normal and to be expected. Once the nest and queen have been removed there is no way or reason for them to continue building the nest and they will soon die off naturally. However, I will apply a residual pesticide that is human/pet friendly to only the affected area and that will speed up the process once they come into contact with it. Expect to see virtually zero activity after two days. If for some reason you still see them after one week I will return to inspect and retreat if necessary, at no charge. You will be the first to join that elite club. ; )

WHY CAN'T I JUST DO IT MYSELF?

   There are wide variety of products and advice on how to deal with these nests. For an underground nest, you may have heard of dish soap and a water hose, foaming wasp sprays or even gasoline!   

   Ok I may be guilty of trying some of these methods in the past which is why I can tell you they are not always successful and some are dangerous and bad for the environment in the case of gasoline. 

   These nests are almost never directly down from the entrance hole and are covered in envelope (the paper protecting the outside of the combs), which makes it nearly impossible for sprays to penetrate. Often times the nest is several inches down and I've seen them as far away as two feet from the point of entry. I call these "spay-n-pray" methods. Full removal of the nest is always optimal.

   Of course there is obviously the danger aspect. Yellowjackets can sting repeatedly and can number in the thousands by late season (late August - October). I have full protective coverings and am comfortable working around hundreds or even thousands of stinging insects. 

   If you are considering attempting it yourself, please first consider calling me and getting a quote. I get many calls after failed nest treatment attempts by homeowners. This disturbs the natural setting of the nest and makes my job more dangerous/difficult. It's likely cheaper and safer to use my service initially and get it taken care of the first time.  It may be cheaper than you think and you could be safely indoors while letting me handle it for you quickly and effectively the first time!

WHY DO I HAVE YELLOWJACKETS?

   Yellowjackets will often use old rodent tunnels such as moles, chipmunks etc. to start their nest. The queen, or foundress, will begin this process all by herself in the spring. She will start building a small amount of nest and lay eggs which will soon hatch into workers who will then take over the laborious task of nest building so she can then focus only on laying eggs in the newly built cells. 

   The soil is carried out piece by piece by the workers to accommodate the ever growing size of the nest. Their numbers grow exponentially at this point repeating the building and expanding process as the population rises. They can also find other places such as in cracks of trees, attics, soffits, or even walls! Almost anywhere that is safe, dry and inconspicuous. If you have any of these scenarios, its totally normal that a queen would find it appealing and decide to start her colony there.

   A good food source and material to build their nests is also attractive to them. Wasps build their nest from wood essentially. They use their mandibles to chew the wood and mix it with saliva and make it into a pulp almost like paper mache. So naturally, wood fences and log piles are a great resource for them. They feed on other insects, nectar and sweet liquids so its almost impossible to not have an attractive locale for them to move in.

ABOUT VESPRO WASP REMOVAL

My Story

   My name is Colin Hall. Over the years of living here in beautiful Crestwood Kentucky I've had my share of run-ins with yellowjackets. I've been stung multiple times while trying to cut our lawn by unknowingly running over a nest in the ground. My wife was also stung eight times on a separate occasion while simply pulling weeds in our garden. That was the last straw and I declared war on them! After trying various methods of dealing with these dangerous stinging insects, I have found a way to eliminate them quickly and effectively for good! I went on to help friends and family who had issues with them as well. I quickly became proficient at it and decided to offer my service to those who may need it on top of my job as a full-time carpenter. I had actually become quite fascinated with them and the way they build their nests, reproduce and feed their young etc. I have studied them and have even gone as far as to relocate a nest into a homemade observatory in which I can watch (and feed!) these amazing insects. Although I don't like having to eliminate them, often it IS necessary to do so for the safety of homeowners, pets etc. When possible, I will relocate nests, as they in fact play an important role in our eco-system. They prey on other pests such as mosquitos and flies and are also pollinators as well.   I hope you appreciate how fascinating wasps and hornets are as much as I do, but at the same time I do understand the desire to not want them near you and your family. Allow me to help you choose the best plan going forward in order to keep you and your loved ones safe.
