Hot Weather Makes Prime Wasp Conditions
As summer continues in the Northern Hemisphere, it is keeping a lot of the pest control companies busy. Though wasp numbers are not actually up this year in Canada, according to city officials, Ryan Frawley from Active Pest Solutions says he has been receiving up to 10 calls everyday.
This is believed to be because people are spending more time outdoors due to the beautiful warm weather, bringing them into contact with more wasps and their nests. Wasps thrive during the summer as the hotter it is, the more other bugs and insects are out, which are the main food source for wasps. This makes the wasps a lot more active throughout summer.
Frawley ensures the queen and the brood are killed when being called out to remove a nest. “Individual wasps can’t live without a queen or a brood,” added Frawley.
