Wasp And Hornet Helpful Hints
- Seal any cracks or holes in your home. These could be holes in the window sills or cracks between the floors and baseboards. Look for holes in the frames of your windows also. Make sure you don’t have any wasp nests in your attic and that there are no entry points for them up there. Wasps are more active in the morning so keep an eye out for them during those hours.
- Wasps leave their nests to seek food. In the spring they seek protein to feed their young if they’ve got them. If you store pet food outdoors, make sure you store it in an airtight container. During the summer, wasps look for sweet food. When you’re having popsicles or sodas by the pool, they’ll most likely show up and want some. Don’t panic and swat at them. The wasp you’re swatting will become more aggressive and release a pheromone to alert the others in their nest of danger. Those wasps could potentially leave the nest to attack you.
- Birds aren’t the only ones who love the birdhouse you’ve put in your yard for them. Wasps enjoy building nests in birdhouses also. If you want to combat this, place aluminum foil on the inside roof and staple it down. This will keep them from building in there.
