How To Get Rid Of Wasps

Wasps can be a bit of a pain, especially if you have a nest near or on your home. Wasps can sting you, which can be quite painful. If you have wasps in your yard, you should get rid of them and their nests if you can. If you aren't sure about how to get rid of them, or if you have a big problem with wasps, leave it to professional pest control services to prevent you from getting injured.

Attack The Nest

Find the nest and get rid of it.This will help to get rid of any wasps that are inside of the nest and hopefully make the rest of the wasps relocate elsewhere. If you aren't sure where the nest is, try to follow where they are all going. If you see a lot of them, you should find them going to a nest. If you aren't able to find them, look in corners of your home, near doorways, beneath your gutters or eaves, or even under your decking on a patio. Spray the nest when you find it using a long-distance spray pesticide. Wasps aren't as active at night, so spraying at night is the best time to do this task.

Eliminate Attractants

Wasps are usually spotted near trash cans, food and around other sweet smelling items in your yard. Cover trash cans, get rid of food that is left out and sweet smelling items such as flowers from near the entrances of your home. Relocate flowers that are near your doorways to prevent wasps from flying around your doorways, which can be a bother anytime you come or go.

Trick The Wasps

Wasps won't build a nest near another wasp nest, so tricking the wasps with a faux nest can help prevent nests. Create a faux nest using crumpled newspaper inside a plastic bag, then place the plastic bag into a small lunch-sized paper bag. Hang the bag on your home to help trick wasps and keep them away.

Ultimately wasps will keep away from you as long as they aren't provoked. Keep away from the wasps and leave them be, and they will leave you alone as well. If you are having a problem with wasps either outside or even inside your home, call a professional pest control specialist for help getting rid of these pesky insects to help keep you safe and to prevent injury.

Using Humane Pest Control Products

When was the last time you started thinking about the types of pest control products you were using? Although it might not seem like an imminent concern, some people worry about how inhumane pest control products hurt the animal population, which is why many folks use humane products. For example, instead of using traditional mouse traps that create lacerations on the mouse, glue traps contain animals without killing them. I wanted to spread the word about humane pest control, so I started this little blog. Check out these articles to learn how you can enjoy a whole new lease on pest control.
