Wasp Control: How to Get Rid of Wasps
When wasps gather around your house, it can make normal outdoor activities impossible to enjoy. While some may choose to leave the nests be, if they are in regularly used areas, it is best to deal with the problem to avoid some painful stings.
Step 1: Identify any Nests– This can be hard because different species of wasps make different types of nests. Some look like teardrops, upturned umbrellas, mud cylinders, or burrows in the ground.
Step 2: Cover Up– Wasps are much more aggressive than bees, and do not die after stinging you, which means they can come after you several times. Wear protective clothing to help mitigate this risk.
Step 3: Have a Plan– Think beforehand about how to keep yourself sting-free so that you aren’t stuck scrambling away with an angry swarm chasing you.
Step 4: Apply Pesticides– There are many different sprays you can use, and we suggest that you read about them first to ensure you are using the product safely. Keep in mind, it is best to spray at night when the wasps are less active.
Step 5: Destroy Nest– After a day or two, if you haven’t seen any wasps, it is probably safe to knock down the nest and clean your house.
Wasps are aggressive when provoked and will sting you quickly, which makes removing them a risky job. And if the nest is in a hard to reach place, it makes the proposition even more dangerous. Climbing a ladder or squeezing into a tight space puts yourself at risk of falling injuries or multiple stings. And if you aren’t sure if you’re allergic to wasps, it’s imperative you don’t put yourself in a situation where you could be stung.
