Have you noticed large swarms of wasp nests in your favourite spots of your yard? You are now looking for the best ways to get rid of the wasps without making them feel that their territory is under threat since they can become more aggressive and sting.

The following can be your solution.

Identify All Nests

The first step you should take is to identify all wasps’ nests in the yard. The most common location of wasps’ nests is under shade. In this case, you should consider checking under tree branches, fence posts, and tree trucks.

Treat the Nests

  • Use sugar and water traps

The tempting treat of sugar and water will attract the wasps inside the trap bottle. After getting in, they will be trapped and can no longer escape. This method is the easiest and the most economical way to catch hornets and wasps since you can easily make your own bottle trap in minutes.

  • Use smoke

If the nests are hanging from the branches of trees, you should light small fires near the nests. Smoke will seep inside the nests and will make them suffocate thereby forcing them out. After a while, put the fires out and spray the inside of the nests with peppermint oil to repel any remaining wasps. Keep in mind that treatment should be done at night in order to decrease the chances of attack.

  • Hire professionals

If you have been trying to get rid of wasps without any success, it’s best to get in touch with a professional company for help. The experts will help you identify and exterminate the nests and will also provide you with tips to help you ensure that the wasps will not return.
