How to Prevent a Wasp Infestation
No one wants wasps to build a nest on their property. Luckily there are a few precautionary measures you can take to prevent an infestation.
To prevent wasps, you should:
- Close your trash bins: Wasps are drawn to trash, so make sure your garbage bins are closed and sealed to keep them out.
- Repair possible entry points: Wasps might enter your home if they spot holes or cracks they can fit through. Be sure to repair any holes in window screens and seal any cracks in your siding, foundation, or anywhere else around your home.
- Relocate food sources in your yard: Common wasp food sources such as nectar-rich flowers, fruit trees, fruit bushes, and bird feeders should be moved away from common areas around your home such as patios, decks, or porches.
- Clean up spills: Any spilled sugary drinks will attract wasps, so be sure to clean up spills and messes right away.
- Schedule pest control: The best way to protect your home from wasps is to bring in a team of professionals to perform routine inspections and treatments. With routine pest control, your technician can spot a nest forming before you’ve got a full-blown infestation.
Where to Find Wasp Nests
If you’ve noticed a high number of wasps on your property or in your home, it is likely that there is a nest nearby. To find a wasp nest, you need to know where to look.
Some of the most common places wasps build nests include:
- Roof edges
- Within walls
If you succeed in finding a wasp nest, do not approach it. Wasps are territorial insects and will sting you if they feel you are encroaching on their territory. While wasp stings are often not dangerous (unless you are allergic), they are quite painful and can cause serious complications and injuries if you are attacked by an entire swarm. Instead, give Greenix Pest Control a call, and we will handle the rest.
