Pests We Treat Photo Album: Cicada Killer Wasps Take Over Pool Excavation Area in Freehold, NJ
These homeowners in Freehold, NJ just wanted to have their pool built, but these cicada killers had other plans!
The contractors were in the process of excavating the area, but the cicada killers were preventing them from continuing their work.
There were multiple cicada killer burrows throughout the excavation area.
They Choose These Areas
Cicada killers choose to nest in well-drained, light-textured soils that are in full sunlight. During the burrowing process, female cicada killers can displace several pounds of dirt making a big mess and damaging the roots of plants.
Don't Worry About Them
Cicada killers may look terrifying, but there's no need to worry because unless they're grasped roughly or stepped on with bare feet, they aren't aggressive.
Treat Each One
We're going to inject every single burrow with a residual dusting product.
This treatment will rapidly exterminate the cicada killers. Once they're gone, the contracting team will continue.
