What Are Wasps? 


Wasps are distinguished from ants and bees by various behavioral and physical characteristics. They have a slender and smooth body and legs, with only a few hairs. They have wings and biting mouth-parts. Wasps act as natural pest control, they take insects from our gardens and bring them back to their nests. They also feed on fruit, nectar, sugar, and protein. During and Summer and Fall seasons they will build their nests in and around homes. Their sting is usually gone within 24 hours, but on a rare occasion, the sting can cause someone to go into anaphylactic shock which can be fatal.

How To Get Rid Of Wasps?

There are multiple options for you to get rid of wasps. One way is to put mild dish soap and water in a spray bottle and spray the nest. The soap clogs their breathing pores, so they die right away. Another way is to spray peppermint oil on the nest, essential oils can be a great wasp repellent. You can also set wasp traps, attracting them into bottles filled with water and sugar. You should make sure your trash bins outside are sealed tight so they are not attracted to the smell of food waste. The best way though is to hire a professional pest control exterminator. If not handled correctly they can multiple, or you can be stung which can be fatal.
