Guaranteed Wasp Control Dekalb County, GA

Wasps are a major pest control problem in Dekalb County, GA. At Arete Pest Control, our technicians are trained and certified to exterminate wasps. We use a telescoping pole to remove nests in trees or other elevated places. We also eliminate wasps with our dust or spray. If we treat your property for wasps and they return, call us back to redo the work.

Wasps construct their nests from chewed wood, mud or dirt. They often nest in tree stumps, trees or underground. Sometimes wasps build their nests in homes or buildings. People fear wasps because of their painful sting. While most stings aren’t hazardous to humans, some people do have allergic reactions. Signs of an allergic reaction to a wasp sting are:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Throat swelling or closing up
  • Abnormal swelling, especially in the face

You should seek emergency medical treatment if you show signs of an allergic reaction.

Frequently Asked Questions about Wasps

  1. Do wasps sting or bite? They sting. While wasps have toxic venom, most wasp stings aren’t a hazard to humans. Minor swelling and itching are typical reactions caused by wasp stings, and these mild symptoms can be treated with hydrocortisone and antihistamine.
  2. Are wasps useful? Wasps are helpful to our environment. They are pollinators, which means that they help plants reproduce by spreading pollen. Wasps also help gardeners and farmers by eating pests such as beetles and crickets.
  3. Do Wasps Die After They Sting You? No, they don’t die after stinging. A wasp will keep their stinger rather than leave it inside you. This allows them to sting multiple times.
  4. Are yellow jackets wasps? Yes, yellow jackets are wasps. They are aggressive wasps, and they have yellow and black markings on them that make them look like bees. However, yellow jackets are slimmer than bees and have smaller waists. Yellow jackets will attack when you get too close to their nest.
  5. What are paper wasps? Paper wasps have six legs and a set of antennae. Paper wasps get their name from the papery nests they make from chewed wood.  The nests are brown or grey and they have a papery feel to them. Paper wasps are among the most common types of wasps in Dekalb County, GA.

Termite Control in Dekalb County

Termites are an annoyance for our customers in Dekalb County. They’re also among the most dreaded pests because they can cause thousands of dollars in damages to a home. Termites eat the wood of your home from the inside out, which leaves walls hollowed out. In the worst of cases, your walls and floors can deteriorate and buckle. Termites have wings, and they range in color from creamy white to almost black. These pests make rattling, clicking, buzzing or rustling sounds as they move through wood and consume wood. You can attempt to eliminate termites on your own. However, finding and exterminating them can be difficult for those who aren’t trained to exterminate them. It’s best to call in an expert. At Arete Pest Control, we have years of experience exterminating termites. We will save you the hassle of doing the work yourself.

Bed Bug Control in Dekalb County

Bed bugs repulse many of our customers in Dekalb County, GA. These pests cause anxiety, especially at nighttime when people lay down to bed. The bugs generally hide during the day and come out at night to feed on human blood. These bugs are small enough to fit into tiny crevices, such as holes in walls, spaces beneath wallpaper and in electric sockets. The bugs are reddish brown with flattened bodies. They give off a musky odor. Bed bugs leave behind pale shells that they shed from their bodies. Bed bugs are tough to exterminate because they can live for weeks without feeding. You may treat them and feel that you’ve gotten rid of all the bed bugs, but then later they may come out to feed again. Some people are ashamed or embarrassed for their guests to see that they have bed bugs. However, the bugs aren’t a sign of filth. Even clean and well-ordered homes can get an infestation. The bugs are easily carried from one place to another on people clothing, in luggage or on used furniture. If you have a bed bug problem, call Arete Pest Control. We will eliminate the bugs for you.
