Protecting Your Portland Property From Stinging Insects

Wasps crawling across their nest

With Portland’s rainy climate, those of us who live here quickly learn to take advantage of the sunny days while they last. Whether it’s a crisp spring morning or a hot summer day, when the weather cooperates, we spend as much time as possible enjoying the great outdoors. 

If you like to spend your time outdoors on your own property, you don’t want that time to be spent running from or swatting away stinging insects. Not only are stinging insects an annoyance, but they can also become a danger if you get close enough to one to get stung. While getting stung is something of a rite of passage for people, it’s not something anyone looks forward to. Stings from hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets hurt, and if you happen to be one of the roughly two million people in the United States with a stinging insect allergy, a sting becomes far more than a simple, painful episode. In fact, it could be deadly. 

No matter if stinging insects are making themselves a nuisance around your property or if they are a danger to your health, you don’t want them on your property. If you’ve noticed them flying around, it’s likely that they’ve built a nest somewhere nearby. To eliminate the stinging insects you see while you’re outside, you have to get to the root of the problem. Hornet control, yellow jacket control, and wasp control in Portland are available from Kanga Pest. We will get rid of your stinging insect problem with thorough, guaranteed service.


Our Stinging Insect Control Service

Stinging insects in Portland can become a problem for any property. Once they establish a nest, their population will grow throughout the season. Many stinging insects become more aggressive as the season progresses, making it more and more dangerous to come into contact with them each time you step out the door.

Flying insects that sting can be intimidating, but with the help of Kanga Pest’s stinging insect control services, you won’t have to worry about them anymore. We offer a variety of services to solve the issue, no matter what types of stinging insects are busy around your property. No inspection is necessary before we come to your property to treat it. Simply give us a call, and we’ll schedule a time to visit, assess, and treat the problem. We even offer emergency stinging insect control services, so you don’t have to wait to take care of your stinging insect problem.

We offer a variety of services for stinging insects depending on the species. We’ll start by identifying the types of stinging insects and locating their nests so that we can properly treat the issue. If paper wasps are present, we’ll knock those nests off the structure and then spray to prevent a new build-up of wasp nests. 

For yellow jacket infestations, we can offer direct nest removal, treatment, or yellow jacket baiting. Treatment usually means the nest is inaccessible, but the yellow jackets are foraging in and out of an exit hole. When this is the case, their nests tend to be located in wall voids of the structure, in the ground, or in other structures, such as retaining walls. In this situation, we’ll dust the entrance and the nest as a whole. Yellow jacket baiting is done with yellow jacket bait stations that contain a raw food product, such as chicken, mixed with a labeled insecticide. If baldfaced hornets are a problem on your property, we’ll remove the nest. We can remove any stinging insect nest up to 30 feet high.

In most cases, just one service visit is enough to take care of your stinging insect problem, and our services are guaranteed. Our home pest control services for wasps and hornets come with a one-time guarantee while removing wasp nests from structures comes with a 30-day guarantee. We do not treat for honey bee infestations.
