Getting rid of wasps is a scary proposition, even to those who do it for a living. Getting rid of wasps becomes a necessity when wasps have built their nests too close for comfort.
In order to know your way around getting rid of wasps, you need to first understand what type of wasps you are dealing with.
Social wasps are the ones usually building their nests near human habitats. Because of their aggressive nature, it’s not safe living with these mean bugs, especially with young children and pets around.
Yellow jackets, hornets and paper wasps all build nests/hives and therefore are very dangerous. Yellow jackets love building their nests in the ground and it’s very difficult to detect their nests. They are very aggressive and won’t tolerate you hanging around their nest.
Hornets normally prefer building their nests on trees and under the eaves of structures, while the paper wasps (least aggressive) will just build anywhere-eaves, tree limbs, neglected structures, overhangs, etc. Getting rid of wasps like yellow jackets and hornets should be considered when they start appearing in swarms.
Wasps are tolerable to a certain extent but there are some situations when getting rid of wasps by use of sprays or other means is necessary.
Getting rid of wasps is usually done in the spring, just before the queen has established its colony. During late summer, wasps are more interested in collecting pollen so their nests decline dramatically during this period.
Below are three safe methods of getting rid of wasps;
One of the preferred methods of getting rid of wasps is by using a wasp spray or wasp nest removal company. To avoid getting stung, you have to use the spray from a safe distance. Improvements have been made over time, and the wasp sprays currently available are safe and don’t have much effect on humans. When getting rid of wasps using this method, make sure that the spray is safe to be used around children and pets.
Another wonderful technique for getting rid of wasps is by using non-hazardous, pesticide-free wasp traps or glass wasp traps. With this method, you simply add some sugary water or soda to the glass. The wasps will get attracted to the glass and get trapped inside and eventually die. Make sure that the glass trap is placed somewhere far to drive the wasps away from you.
The best way of getting rid of wasps
Is to prevent them from building their nests in the first place. Fortunately, there is a clever product which does just that. It’s called the waspinator. Getting rid of wasps using a waspinator is indeed very easy. A waspinator is a smart natural wasp repellant. It’s a fake nest which looks real to hornets and yellow jackets. Being territorial, wasps won’t dare build a nest where an already existing nest. When hanged at a strategic location, wasps will ignore that area and move on.
Hang Wasp Traps
These are hanging traps that contain bait and attract the wasps with their smell. You hang them in trees and shrubs near your home where you think there may be a nest.
Using a Waspinator
A waspinator is a smart natural wasp repellant that repels wasps, hornets and yellow jackets. It works by acting as a decoy of an enemy wasp nest.
The waspinator is easy to use and will protect you and your family from stings. You should place it near the entrance of your home, on top of your porch or patio, or anywhere else you may be bothered by insects.
Spray Wasp Nest
If you get a wasp nest in your home, you need to act fast. Wasps are aggressive insects that sting and bite if they feel threatened. They also make a mess of your home and can pose a real health risk to anyone with an allergy to the stings.
The best way to get rid of wasps is by spraying them directly with insecticides that kill on contact. This can be done either manually or by using an aerosol sprayer.
However, before you start spraying, make sure you know what type of wasp nest you have and how big it is. Some kinds of wasps build their nests in holes in walls or under eaves, while others build them in trees or shrubs. If there are large numbers of wasps in your garden or around your house, then there may be multiple nests near each other and the situation could become dangerous very quickly if not dealt with quickly enough.
Treat future wasp nesting areas
You can prevent wasp nests from forming by treating future nesting areas.
The best time to treat for wasps is the end of summer or early fall, when the queen has died off and the colony has begun to die out. However, if you see a nest after this time, you should still treat it. If there are still wasps in the area, it’s best to get rid of them before they start a new nest.
To treat an existing nest, use a spray bottle full of soapy water (1 part liquid soap to 4 parts water) and spray around the entrance hole or holes until they’re soaked. This will suffocate any remaining wasps inside the nest and prevent any new ones from entering.
