This past weekend our office received an email from a concerned customer. They believed to have “something” in the wall that was eating away at the drywall. She mentioned that her husband knocked lightly and his fist went through the drywall.
When Gates Wildlife Technician Nick arrived on site, he decided to start his inspection by looking at the interior wall where the customer was hearing the noice. They had covered the area with newspaper and duct tape for the time being, while they awaited their appointment with us. Nick pulled back the duct tape, which peeled off the rest of the paint on the wall, revealing this rather large wasp nest! Although the nest was not active at this time of year, Nick recommended a pest control company to the customer to have the nest removed.
From time to time we will receive calls from customers that describe noise as “an animals snoring.” It is common for homeowners to describe the buzzing of wasps inside their nest as “snoring.”
The following is the review we received from this very customer on HomeStars:
“Nick came (was running late due to weather conditions and called to let us know) and inspected the infested area. We thought it was a squirrel inside the wall and it turns out it was a wasp nest. Because it wasn’t wildlife, they were unable to remove the nest but there was no charge for the service. Nick was very professional and knowledgeable, giving us recommendations for pest control companies to contact. I would definitely use this company for all my wildlife removal again.”
Thank you to our customer for writing such a kind review about Gates Wildlife Technician Nick and our company on HomeStars.
