Natural Wasp Control

Natural Wasp Control

Wasps, although annoying, should be thought of as beneficial insects.

They prey mainly on other insects, many of which are pests. In general, they avoid human activity and should only be considered a nuisance when nesting near homes or high traffic areas.
