Wasp Control and Yellow Jacket Control in Riverside, CA

Wasp Removal

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.

Wasp Nests

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

    Wasp Removal Ken K.

    Wasp Removal  Nic Shafer with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is a gopher's worst nightmare! We contacted this company due to our gopher infestation in our backyard lawn.  Our home is perched in the hills above Riverside within the Lake Hills community, so we have a lot of wildlife.  This year was an exceptionally active year for gophers and other insects and wildlife due to the abundance of rain during the previous winter.  Normally, I wouldn't mind the occasional gophers in previous years. But this summer the abundance of gophers was getting out of control. They were tearing up our lawn right next to our pool which was causing dirt and rocks to be thrown into our pool from the gopher mounds. It was time to call a professional.
    The customer service on my initial call was amazing.  They sent a technician named Nic almost immediately.  I met Nic on his first service day at my home and he was SO friendly, knowledgeable and just a great person.  He spent time explaining the tactics they use, which was trapping, baiting and the use of carbon monoxide to penetrate the tunnels.  
    After 3-4 visits within 30 days our gopher problem vanished.  I will continue to use Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control in the future and I would like to commend Nic Shafer for his excellent service and attitude!!!

    Wasp Removal  I am so impressed with the professionalism and the efficiency of this company. Gophers were destroying our yard and within the first week they caught 4. I am so happy with the 30 day guarantee because I have had to call two more times after the initial trapping (gophers like our yard)They showed up when they said they would and took care of business. I HIGHLY recommend them!!!!

  • Wasp Removal  I had the front and backyard sprayed for black widows. The tech was knowledgeable, professional and on time. I hope not see anymore creepy crawlers.

    Wasp Removal Scott S.

    Wasp Removal  I was having problems with spiders and ants! I called and spoke to Mike and he sent a technician named Nic the same day. Nic was here for over an hour taking down webs and servicing my home. He was very friendly and thorough and advised me on what I could expect in the next couple of days. So far I'm happy with the results, I would highly recommend using their service and will be signing up on a ongoing service. Thanks guys you guys are awesome!

    Wasp Removal Jeannette B.

    Wasp Removal  This was my second time using GoPher the Kill for my gophers and I'm very satisfied with their service!
    First time I believe they caught 3 (set traps, and even used CO2 as the gophers were pretty settled in yards of our new home).  This time around they caught 1 and that did the trick. I believe it's been almost a year between these two visits.
    Very friendly staff, efficient and thorough. I received a call this morning since my 30 day service (the one service lasts unlimited visits for 30 days) is almost up. I appreciate them trying to come out again and reminding me before my 30 days is up.

  • Wasp Removal  These guys are awesome! We had a mole that, despite our best efforts, we could not get rid of.  We reached out to Go-Pher, they provided us a fair estimate and scheduled a day to come out.  Upon arrival they actual slightly decreased the estimate based on the size of our yard. A few days later, they came back and confirmed they caught the mole! They checked back a week later to make sure we didn't have any other intruders and set some bait to make sure they got everything.  What I was most pleased with, however, was the final follow up call we got yesterday.  They called to remind us that our 30 day guaranty period was almost over so just wanted to make sure we haven't had any additional problems.  Really awesome customer service!!

    Wasp Removal Chelsea J.

    Wasp Removal  They caught two gophers in one day. Do not wait to hire them. I tried everything to kill these rodents but was unsuccessful. They came out and set up traps and the next day two were caught. I wasted so much time trying to do it myself that the gophers ended up doing a lot of damage. I'm mad at myself for not calling them earlier.

    Wasp Removal Rick H.

    Wasp Removal  I'd been dealing with gophers for a very long time. But once they started to get near the house, it was time to get help.  I saw the truck with the ugly gopher on it and decided that was the company to use.  Nick came out and set traps, returned the next day catching two of those buggers. Nick was very informative and helpful, answered all my exhausting questions. A big thank you.

    Wasp Removal Vicki W.
  • Wasp Removal  Excellent company! I just recently completed installing a newly landscaped yard and after a few months of enjoying my yard- it stared to get attacked by gophers.
    I tired to deal with the issue myself (of ridding  the gophers ) for a couple of months with no luck.
    Then Nic came out and noticed the damage, set a few traps for overnight and when he came back the following morning - he was able to catch the 3 gophers that were behind my headaches.
    But what really set Nic apart - was after he was done with removing the gophers he took the time to remove the large dirt piles left by the gophers and blend it all back in to the existing landscaping like they were never there. Nic is awesome and will spend the time to give you some insight on gopher habits.

    Wasp Removal Joe G.

    Wasp Removal  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

    Wasp Removal Keith P.

    Wasp Removal  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!

    Wasp Removal Julianne M.
  • Wasp Removal  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.

    Wasp Removal Chris W.

    Wasp Removal  The past two years we have had rat(s) in our attic.  We have used Go-Pher the Kill both times and have been extremely happy with their service.  Although we received the full month coverage, the rat was caught early and problem solved.  The pricing is good; we obtained other estimates before settling on this company.
    The "exterminator," Nick, is a very professional and courteous professional.  In addition to setting the traps, he gave up tips and adjustments to make to prevent a recurrence.  Perhaps if we had listened, we wouldn't have had a problem the next year!
    Overall, our experience with Go-Pher the Kill has been great and I have no problem recommending them for your pest killing needs.

    Wasp Removal Derek B.

    Wasp Removal  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.
