Right now most bee and wasp nests are about the size of a golf ball, but with these stinging insects working 24/7, nests can quickly grow to the size of a basketball. It happens because most people do not generally walk around their properties looking up, and few homeowners have the time to inspect their properties every few days. As a result, nests can grow very large—and dangerous—before being noticed.


The best thing you can do right now to protect your family is to perform some basic preventive maintenance with a structural power spray. Different from a power wash, a structural power spray destroys existing nests, discourages the building of new nests, and prevents the dangerous breakthrough of bees and wasps into homes and other buildings. 


At Ideal, we outline your home’s entire structure with spray, including windows, soffits, shutters, corner posts, doorways, handrails, and wherever else there could be a crack. We use high pressure to reach the peaks and eaves. In addition, all structures on the property are also treated, including out buildings, barns, detached garages, cedar play sets, sheds, etc. 


Our structural power spray comes with a one-year warranty. If you see stinging insects nesting around your home for the remainder of the year, we come back—for free.


If you are concerned about other creepy crawlers—such as ants, spiders, centipedes, stink bugs, and rodents or mosquitoes—we recommend our Full-Year/365 Protection Plan for guaranteed year-round protection. Don’t get stung, and don’t wait until your summer picnic has been spoiled.


Now is the time for your structural power spray or to begin your 365 Protection Plan and guarantee your year without pests. To get started, call 330-963-0085 or 330-562-8650.Ideal Pest Control is located at 711 East Twinsburg Road, Unit 8, in Northfield Center. Visit
