Stinging Insect nests can be found in the ground, in bushes and trees, in construction voids, and sometimes inside a wall or ceiling. Wall and ceiling nests can pose a serious threat; they can actually eat their way through the drywall, and break through into the living space.

At Rambo Total Pest Control, we have all the tools and experience necessary to eliminate an active nest quickly and efficiently! We can usually accomplish this within hours of your call.

Upon arrival, we will inspect your property so that we can locate all of the Stinging Insect nests. If you have any areas of concern, please inform your technician. Some preventative actions can be taken to limit Stinging Insect activity on your property, but the true measure of control is only possible when a nest can be located and destroyed or removed.

The location of the nest will determine the treatment method, and if the nest can be removed or not. Rambo Total Pest Control will always attempt to remove the nest from your property after we destroy it for immediate results; however, sometimes the nest location prevents that from happening.

We warranty the treated nests until the end of the calendar year, but this warranty is limited to social varieties of stinging insects which build large nests, like yellow jackets and hornets. Given the nature of these pests, in certain circumstances you may be advised to begin a monthly preventive service to extend through the summer months.


When you call, our friendly office staff will discuss with you the specifics of your pest issue, provide an estimated phone quote based on this conversation, and schedule a time for one of our highly trained technicians to come by for the initial inspection and service.

We’re here to help!
