Common Pest Issues We Treat in Northville
Paper wasps are common in Northville’s residential neighborhoods because of all the horizontal surfaces they can choose from to build their nests on.
These wasps take their name from their nests, which are made from a mixture of chewed up plants, wood fibers and wasp saliva.
Like other social wasps, paper wasps are very territorial and will attack both animals and humans they think could be threatening their nest.
Paper wasp stings are particularly painful and can cause an anaphylactic reaction in individuals allergic to wasp stings.
“Mud dauber” is a general name for solitary wasps that make their nests out of mud. Inside the nests, the female mud dauber places a paralyzed spider or insect next to each egg so that the new larvae will have something to eat when it hatches.
There are many species of wasps referred to as mud daubers. Some other common names are dirt daubers, organ-pipe wasps, mud wasps, and potter wasps. Mud daubers are normally either black or metallic blue in color. They may also have yellow or greenish markings on the body. While they are not as aggressive as social wasps like yellow jackets or bald-faced hornets, many residents still do not want these pests on or around their home.
