Absolute’s Pest Free Process
Our process begins with a thorough inspection of your property. Our experienced technicians identify the types of pests present, their breeding grounds, and potential entry points, allowing us to understand the extent of the infestation.
Based on the inspection findings, we develop a customized treatment plan. This could involve the use of environmentally friendly pesticides, traps, or other methods, all designed to effectively eliminate the pests from your property.
After the treatment, we focus on pest prevention, which involves educating clients on how to minimize future pest problems and making your property less attractive to pests. This step is crucial in preventing future infestations.
We stand by our service guarantee and follow up on our treatments to ensure the effectiveness of our work. This allows us to make any necessary adjustments and verify that your rat problem has been thoroughly resolved.
The final step is regular maintenance. We provide ongoing services to ensure that your property remains pest-free. This includes periodic inspections and treatments as necessary, giving you peace of mind knowing that your home is protected from pests.
Painful Wasp Stings
A wasp’s sting can be incredibly painful, and multiple stings can pose a serious threat, especially to small children or pets.
Some people may have severe allergic reactions to wasp stings which can lead to anaphylaxis. This is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical attention.
When wasps feel threatened, they may swarm which poses a significant threat to anyone in the vicinity due to the possibility of receiving multiple stings.
Wasp Nest Inside Home
Wasps often build their nests inside homes, in areas like attics, porches, and eaves, which can lead to large infestations, structural damage, and increased interaction with humans.
Common Species of Wasps
Paper wasps are known for their unique, umbrella-shaped nests. They are typically brown with yellow markings and can sting if disturbed.
Easily recognized by their bright yellow and black striped bodies, yellow jackets are particularly aggressive, especially when their underground nests are threatened or disturbed.
Bald Faced Hornets
Despite their name, bald-faced hornets are a type of wasp. They are large, with white and black coloring. They are known for their large, aerial nests and can be aggressive when disturbed.
European wasps are not native to the US and are bright yellow with black stripes. They have a particularly painful sting and can be aggressive. They build nests in a variety of locations including eaves and under roof overhangs.
These solitary wasps are identified by their slender, thread-waisted bodies. They build tubular mud nests, often in sheltered areas like eaves or garages. They are generally not aggressive and rarely sting.
How to Prevent Wasps
Repairing Access Points
Seal off all potential entry points, such as cracks and gaps in the structure, to prevent wasps from building nests inside your home or business.
Covering Garbage and Other Food Sources
Secure trash cans with tight-fitting lids and clean up any outdoor eating areas immediately after use, as wasps are attracted to human food and trash.
Keeping Doors and Windows Closed or Covered
Install screens over windows and doors to prevent wasps from entering, and keep doors and windows closed whenever possible.
Treat Harborage Areas with Regular Pest Control Maintenance
Regularly scheduled pest control treatments can deter wasps from settling and building nests around your property, keeping you and your loved ones safe.

We just moved into a newly built home, and there were ants, roaches, and spiders everywhere! We gave Absolute a call and they were out within a few days of setting up service, and had the best value (I called and got quotes from three other local providers).
Our technician, Kenny, came out and was absolutely amazing
From day one we have been very happy with the detailed inspections of our home and landscape. Josh, our current technician is a great customer service representative. Easy communication and thorough. We appreciate the detailed summary of service and list of applied products provided after each visit. No pest control issues!
They’ve been coming by for almost a year with easy-to-book quarterly appointments. At the beginning, since I had just moved in to a new house, it required a few reservice appointments. They quickly added me to the schedule and didn’t give me any hassle about coming back. Everyone has been friendly!
