How To Exterminate Wasps
Although wasps look very much like bees, they are a million time worse than the cute stingy things that give us the delicious honey. Unlike bees, wasps are predators. They kill other insects and feed them to their larvae. Some wasp species are omnivorous, eating everything they can find, thus creating a real problem for the natural eco-system. Another menace for humans is the fact that the wasp sting can be extremely harmful, even life threatening, in case the subject is allergic to venom. This is why you need to get rid of wasps around your home. This article is going to show you how to do it.
First of all, you need to see if you really have a problem or the fact that you notice a lot of wasps buzzing around in only a coincidence. You need to check your house and your garden thoroughly, looking for evidence that the wasps have built a nest somewhere on your property.
There are two type of wasp nests: aerial and in-ground. Aerial nests are easier to locate, as they are quite visible. You have to check the trees, the bushes and the exterior of your buildings. Check the area just below the roof, as that’s a pretty common place for wasps to build their nests. After you’ve found the nest, make sure to prevent the wasps from getting inside your house. Close all windows and doors and seal all openings until you finish destroying the nest. Wear protective clothing, so that wasps can’t sting you. Don’t ignore this piece of advice, because wasp stings can be extremely dangerous.
If you have a known allergy to wasp venom, it’s best to call an exterminator to do the job for you. Even if you wear adequate protection, it is still possible that a wasp stings you, case in which you can suffer an anaphylactic shock which can kill you in as little as two minutes, if you don’t have an epinephrine pen with you. Another issue with destroying wasp nests is the protection of the children and pets in your home. Make sure they are inside the house with no possibility of running out unexpectedly while you deal with the wasps. In conclusion, it’s a wise idea to do periodical inspections of your house and garden, so that you can locate wasp nests when they are still young and destroy them before it becomes too difficult. Whether you want to do it yourself or to hire a professional exterminator, always take all cautionary measures to protect yourself and your family from the stings
