The springtime is a beautiful season to welcome the birds, flowers and blossoming trees. Unfortunately, it’s also the time in which wasps and yellow jackets make their nests and go on the hunt for food. This is problematic for a lot of homeowners who are trying to do yard work and are constantly being attacked by these pesky pests. Wasps and yellow jackets sting their prey and this can be pretty painful to the victim. If you’re allergic to the sting, it can even land you in the hospital in more severe cases.
In order for you to get rid of wasps on your property, there are a couple of things you can do. First, wasps tend to like bodies of water like pools and stagnant ponds. If you have an area of water that generally isn’t being used, make sure that you cover it up or drain it out. Next, you’ll want to invest in some high quality traps that can be placed around the property to attract the wasps. These traps will need to be filled with a sweet liquid like fruit juice or sugary soda and the wasps will go into the trap but not be able to come back out.
If you’re finding that you’re having an especially difficult time with wasps on the property despite using traps, it might be time to consider a professional pest control company. There could be a paper nest somewhere on your land that you’re not aware of and the company can get rid of it for you.
