Buzz Off, Wasps! How to Handle Springtime Insect Intruders

March 30, 2024

Secured Environments Pest and Wildlife Services - Wasps

Springtime brings the promise of blooming flowers, warmer weather, and unfortunately, unwelcome guests: wasps. As the temperature rises, these stinging insects emerge from their winter hideouts, ready to establish new nests and become a potential nuisance to homeowners.

Dealing with wasps can be a challenge, especially when they decide to build their nests near your home or in your garden. Their presence can pose a threat to both humans and pets, with their painful stings capable of causing allergic reactions in some individuals.

However, there are steps you can take to minimize the risk of encountering these buzzing pests. Start by inspecting your property for any signs of wasp activity, such as nests under eaves, in trees, or around doorways. If you spot a nest, it's best to contact a professional pest control service to safely remove it.

Additionally, consider implementing preventative measures to deter wasps from building nests in the first place. Keep outdoor garbage cans tightly sealed, avoid leaving food and sweet beverages exposed, and seal any cracks or openings around your home where wasps could potentially enter.

While encountering wasps in the spring can be unsettling, staying proactive and taking preventative measures can help keep these pesky insects at bay, allowing you to fully enjoy the beauty of the season without the worry of a sting. Contact Secured Environments Pest and Wildlife Services, we can help you with your wasp problems.
