Wasps are drawn to what draws them. The five things you can do to keep wasps out of your house or garden.
WASPS can be a pain, especially during the summer, but how do you get rid of them? What draws them to your home or garden in the first place?
Summer heralds the arrival of the dreaded wasp season. If you are allergic to their venom, these flying pests can deliver unpleasant stings and can cause serious breathing issues or extreme swelling. If a swarm of wasps is buzzing around your lawn or home, you’ll want to get rid of it as soon as possible. Here are three methods for eliminating these pests.
We have two varieties of wasps in the UK: common wasps (Vespula vulgaris) and German wasps (Vespula germanica), but what is attracting them?
Have you ever noticed that wasps pay more attention to you than they do to others?
This could be due to the fact that you are dressed in bright colors.
Wasps are attracted to bright colors, so it’s worth abandoning that yellow t-shirt for your al fresco meal if you want to avoid being stung.
Wasps, like humans, have a sweet appetite and are lured to sugary drinks and snacks.
When you’re attempting to eat a birthday cake outside, this is a sad fact.
If you eat something sweet near wasps, make sure to cover any leftovers.
You might be tempted to swat at these pests as you sit down to a picnic in the park or light up the grill in your backyard.
This is not a good idea since squashing a wasp releases a chemical that alerts other wasps to attack.
You might be hounded by a swarm of wasps, so here are five things you can do to keep them away or get rid of them properly.
Wasps dislike the smell of some plants, so if you plant them, they should stay away from your garden.
Marigolds, fresh mint, and tomato stems may smell wonderful to humans, but wasps despise them.
If you don’t want these noxious plants in your garden, try sprinkling ground coffee and gloves around the perimeter to dissuade bugs.
Peppermint oil can also be strewn throughout your yard to deter wasps from swarming, but be sure to re-strew these oils whenever it rains.
