Wasp Control and Yellow Jacket Control in Riverside, CA

Paper Wasp Nest Control & Removal Riverside, Corona, Norco, Eastvale

Many wasps are solitary creatures that pose little threat to people. However, social wasps become a nuisance by taking over an area. They build large nests and fight tooth and stinger to defend it. If you encounter a wasp nest, steer clear as you may find yourself swarmed without warning.

Wasps play an important part in our local environment. They decrease the population of other insects such as spiders and irritating flies. Nest building begins in the springtime when the queen emerges from her winter slumber. As the nest begins to grow, it produces larvae through the foraging of proteins and sugars by the workers.

Usually by late summer, the colony’s growth slows, and the scavengers switch their focus to sugars. Swarms of wasps may be seen around trash cans, picnic areas, and other places where ripe fruits are accessible. This is when people are most often exposed because the flowers the wasps had been obtaining their nutrients from are no longer available.

Wasps are diligent defenders and persistent scavengers. If you encounter one looking for food at a picnic or gathering, attempting to swat at it may only serve to aggravate it. We’ve heard stories of wasps crawling into soda cans and stinging people in the mouth as they take a drink.

While painful, a single sting is not an immediate danger unless you have an allergic response. Typically, the swelling and pain will subside after a short time. In the event you experience multiple stings, you should seek professional medical help.

Best Pest Control Company to Remove Paper Wasps

Paper Wasp Nest Hanging Under Play Structure

Yellow jackets’ nests are commonly found underground in abandoned rodent holes and can appear in wall, ceiling, and roof cavities as well. A combination of saliva and wood fibers are used to build the structure. It is important not to get too close to their nest, as the wasps will become EXTREMELY defensive. Unlike bees’ stingers, wasps’ stingers do not have barbs, and thus, they can be used repeatedly for attacks. This can be extremely damaging should a wasp find its way inside your clothing!  If you’ve ever heard someone talk about “meat bees,” yellow jackets are what they are referring to.

Paper wasps look similar to yellow jackets, but their nests are usually found hanging under eaves and other protected areas rather than hidden underground or in voids.  Their nest looks like a honey comb and usually have some cells closed off and numerous wasps hanging on.  Paper wasps will gather food to feed the larvae inside.  Problems occur when the nest grows large enough to support numerous wasps or when the nest is near a doorway or other common area that is frequently traveled.


If you suspect you have a yellow jacket or paper wasp nest, the best solution is to call the professionals at Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control to perform wasp control in a safe  and efficient manner. This is especially important when dealing with large nest populations. Some yellow jacket colonies can reach upwards of 15,000!

What Our Pest Control Customers Are Saying

  •   Great service. We've been fighting the gophers for the last couple years with no luck. Called Go-Pher The Killer and they took care of the problem. We didn't even have to be home. 3 gophers were caught overnight with no sweat off my back. Great company

    thumb Keith P.

      Highly recommend! Nic was so helpful and knowledgeable when it came to our specific situation. He answered all our questions and was very thorough. He showed us each step in the process of catching and removing the gophers and how to recognize new activity. These guys know what they're doing. Thank you Nic!

    thumb Julianne M.

      Go-Pher is awesome! You won't be disappointed with this company. I had a gopher problem on my property, which is a little over 1/4 acre, and Nic came out and set about 8 traps. He came by the following week and removed what he had caught, then baited the holes as a final barrier against future gophers. Nic was great! He was on time, very knowledgeable, and was in and out in less than an hour. Thanks Nic.

    thumb Chris W.
  •   I had a gopher problem that was driving me crazy and I decided to look for a professional to take care of my issue. After looking around and reading reviews I decided to give Go-pher the kill a call and I'm glad I did. They displayed great customer service and answered all my questions regarding their services. Nick came out to my house for the initial call and he was very informative and extremely professional when it came to gopher catching, he set a couple traps and bait and the following day he came back to discover that he caught two gophers in my lawn. I'm very happy with the service and decided to continue using Gopher the kill's monthly service. Thank you Nick.

    thumb Don J.

      We are very pleased with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control!  Their customer service is beyond excellent!  They are extremely responsive, friendly, skilled, and knowledgeable.  We have an acre, and every kind of pest you can imagine from mice, rats, squirrels, gophers to insects.  We had an issue of rats getting into the attic of our home, and they expertly solved the issue.  They maintain everything under good control, and it is seemless to us.  They send reminder notices regarding their visits, and leave a detailed report of what they did and found.  This is a trusted and reliable company, and would highly recommend their services!

    thumb Rhonda G.
  •   We have been fighting gophers on my property for 2 1/2 years. We have a regular pest control guy that seem to be reducing the population but not illuminating the problem.

    We hired Go-Pher The Kill and the gophers were gone within 24 hours. I can't even believe it. It has now been almost a month since they initially started, they've come back multiple times and have been very thorough.

    They are quick and easy to work it with, their set up was simple. True professionals. If you have gophers hire them!

    thumb Lindsey J.

      The best service I have ever had from a pest company. Go-Pher The Kill is on top of it they have been servicing our home for 4 years and I wanted to take a moment and comment on how AWSOME they are. I send an email and get quick response and prompt service. In the last week they came out quick to get rid of a gopher and again this week for a mouse in my attic. The service from their employer Ryan was tremendous, professional and all around an A+++ for the last many years.

    thumb Jackie S.

      This is great company. We first contacted them when we had gopher problems. And then ants and spiders and then rodents that got inside the 3rd car garage wrecking havoc on our stuff. They always try to get somebody to get to the house right away. Nic Shafer is the one always going to our house. He always ring the doorbell to let me know he's going to check the bait boxes in our backyard. Sometimes he calls beforehand. When I see him, he always asks me how everything is going and if there are problems and he always go and check and solve these problems if we have them. He's polite and knows how to get rid of these pests. Great job Nic!

    thumb Anne R.
  •   I have been using this company since I moved to Riverside 3 years ago and I'm very happy with them. Gophers were invading our property and they got rid of them very quickly. Anytime there is new activity, Mike is just a call away. He responds promptly and is very efficient. I would definitely recommend them!

    thumb Anabel D.

      Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is the only company we call to handle our pest issues.  Mike is always willing to handle any job we throw his way.  Incredibly reliable, efficient, affordable and always goes beyond the call of duty.  Last minute phone calls to handle rodent issues are never a problem - Mike has always been there for us.  We highly recommend this company to all.

    thumb Deana V.

      John came out right away and set multiple gopher traps. He was knowledgeable and thorough, even cleaning up the dirt from the gopher mounds. Looking forward to having these destructive rodents permanently removed!
