Save on Natural Cicada Killer Wasp Control!

Did you know that the Cicada Killer Wasp is by far the largest wasp in New Jersey? Cicada Killer Wasps are called “Cicada Killers” because female wasps hunt live cicadas, paralyze them with their stinger and drag them into underground burrows to feed their young. The sight of these huge wasps (two inches or larger) causes many of our customer's stress. This is why many New Jersey residents call Arkadia Eco Pest Control to knock them out before they multiply and the Cicada Killer Wasp population becomes out of control!

In Northern New Jersey, Cicada Killer Wasps are active during July, August, and September.

Every summer frantic NJ customers call Arkadia to help them control these nasty looking behemoth wasps - and we are happy to help you as well!

Threat to Humans

Cicada Killers are frightening to look at, especially when they are hovering around your back yard in New Jersey, but are they harmful to humans? Well, the simple answer is yes and no. Male Cicada Killers, which make up the majority of the Cicada Killer flight population, can't and do not sting. The male Cicada Killer's stinger is actually a sex organ used for mating. The female Cicada Killer Wasp, on the other hand, does sting and will sting when threatened or stepped on. This is why we ask our customers to not step on Cicada Killer dirt mound nests (as tempting as it might be)
