A good exterminator?

yellow jacketMiriam emails:

I know you covered mice issues a while back but we have a wasp nest we can't reach with death spray and we're trying to find a good exterminator to come and destroy the little yellow jacketed ninjas who keep creeping into our house. Any suggestions?

A ninja infestation? Could be tricky.

Got a suggestion for Miriam? Please share!

Its going to be spendy to get rid of ninjas.


1. Ninjas are mammals.
2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people

good luck.. with alllllll of that.

We've used Hudson Valley Organic Pest Control before for a wasp infestation. 477-4191. The gentleman who came out was very knowledgeable, and very willing to explain about the products they use.

Yes. We have used Absolute Pest Control from time to time for 20 years, and have always been extremely pleased with their service. They actually try to figure out the problems that cause your infestation, rather than just spraying it to death. Everyone we've referred to them has also raved.

Not to be trite, but give it three weeks. We had a similar problem last year. As soon as the cold weather comes around, they croak.
