How to Get Rid of Cicada Killers for Good!

Serving Suffolk County | Nassau County | Long Island | Brooklyn

If you’re wondering how to get rid of cicada killers or digger wasps, you need to start with a great lawn. It works to maintain a healthy lawn, but it’s the best way to keep these nasty-looking insects away. Cicada killers just can’t burrow into a thick covering of grass. You’ll need to fertilize, water, and plant extra grass seed. If cicada killers or digger wasps are digging holes in your planting beds, put down landscape fabric and mulch. Also, you could add a layer of fine gravel. Nothing can terrify a homeowner more than seeing scary-looking wasps in their yard.

Cicada Killers or Digger Wasps

These large wasps rarely sting unless threatened. Cicada killer wasps usually appear in June, July, or August.  They dig holes to form a burrow and then hunt for cicadas. This video shows this wasp in action. Thanks to Andy Revkin of The New York Times for this video. Contact us today if you find yourself with an infestation.
