How To Prevent A Wasp Infestation

Anyone that has ever been stung by a wasp will immediately remember the pain and distress that it caused.

It’s best to avoid being stung if possible, so here are a a few tips to reduce the chances of getting stung by a wasp.

Remove Food Sources

The best way to avoid getting stung is to prevent wasps from being attracted to your property in the first place. Removing food sources should be top of your to-do list.

This can be achieved regularly removing rubbish from your home. Put all food waste into sealed plastic bags and into bins. This is good advice to follow both inside and outside the house. Wrapping food in clingfilm before disposing of it in your outside bins is a good way of sealing it off so that the wasps can’t get to it so easily.

Inspect your home and block entry points

Take a good look around your house to see if you can spot any small holes, especially in the rooftop / attic area as this is where they like to go to build their nest.

Keep food covered when having outdoor parties

In those summer months when the weather is right for a garden party, try and keep food covered, especially sweet food, as the scent of it will be picked up on by wasps nearby and before you know it you’ll have many unwanted guests at your party!

All wasp infestations should be treated with caution. If you find you have a wasp nest, the best thing to do is contact an experienced pest control company to deal with it.
