As the weather gets warmer, wasps are becoming more bold and it’s probably got you asking how to remove wasps from your home.
In this article, we’ll discuss the things you can try to remove wasps from your home naturally, why you need to be careful when removing wasps from your property and what to do when the task gets beyond your capabilities.
Why Should You Be Careful When Removing Wasps from Your Home
It may seem like common sense, but it’s always very important to be extremely careful when removing wasps – or any stinging insect from your home.
Not only is this because the wasp sting can be dangerous and even fatal (especially if you or someone you live with is allergic), but also because wasps sometimes act as a natural form of protection and pest control against other insects.
How to Remove Wasps Yourself
Wasps can be a huge inconvenience and potentially dangerous. But the good news is that there are a few ways in which you can remove them from your property naturally. Here, we’ll discuss some of the most common and effective solutions:
Set Wasp Traps
Homemade wasp traps are great ways to remove wasps naturally. All you need to do is cut the top off a plastic bottle, filling the bottom with detergent or soft drink. Invert the bottle and hang it in your yard.
Use Soap & Water or Other Natural Repellents
Using a mixture of soap and water as an alternative insecticide has been proven an effective option for some people. This is because when wasps inhale this mixture, it will clog their pores and kill them instantly.
Another option which has proved effective is a vinegar solution combined with sugar and water or cloves, lemongrass and geranium essential oils.
Check & Seal Entry Points
Cracks and nooks and crannies are great entry points for wasps. That’s why, when spotted, you should seal them off as soon as possible, especially if you want to prevent wasp infestations indoors.
Kill Visible Wasps
Spraying visible wasps with an insecticide can be an effective way to remove wasps from your property. The sprayed wasp then takes that insecticide back to its nest and infects all the other wasps. However, it can be risky because in order to kill a wasp, you generally have to get close to it, which mightn’t be an ideal solution.
