Cicada Killers in Maryland
Protect your home or business from this stinging nuisance with our top of the line pest control experts.
What Are Cicada Killers?
Usually around two inches in length, these large wasps are uniquely named for the way they feed their young. Female cicadas build burrows in the ground as the future home of their eggs. Before closing off the tunnel, though, they sting cicadas to paralyze them and deposit several maimed cicadas in their burrows. Once they are done, female cicadas will lay their eggs and close off the burrows. Once the eggs hatch, their young feed on the cicadas left behind by the female.
The problem is that these burrows can be disturbed by mowing the lawn or other activities, explain the pest management professionals at Viking. The female Cicada Killers will sting to protect their burrows, making it difficult to care for or use your lawn. Not only do they create a nuisance in this way, but larger infestations can damage your lawn.
Our pest management professional gets to the source of the problem to protect your home or business.
