Tips For Keeping Wasps Away

Do you remember the first time your little one was stung by a wasp in your yard? You probably will remember for the rest of your life because it is usually a rather traumatic event. It is always better to just keep the wasps away from your home so you don’t have to worry about your kiddos getting stung while they are swinging on the swing or jumping on your tramp.

There are a few things that you can do to help be sure that you do not have to deal with sad littles ones from wasp stings. Wasps are attracted to scents as well as good hiding places. When you consider the two items, it is no wonder that your backyard makes a great place for wasps to live.

Close Up Hiding Places

How many times have you been somewhere jumping on a trampoline only to find that there are hundreds of wasps living inside of the pipes? Tramps are one of the best places for wasps to live. The small holes are a great avenue for them to get inside, but for other things not to enter. If you can, try and eliminate as many of the holes as you can. Keeping the holes closed and small in number will make it harder wasps to take over. It is also a good idea to use natural treatments like essential oils sprays to on the tramp pipes to make them think twice before they move in.

Think Before you Plant

Before you decide to plant a wonderful garden full of flowers in your yard, you should consider the type of flowers that you are planting. A quick Google search should help you determine if the flowers are a good choice to plant in your yard. Some flowers draw wasps in even worse than others. Do your research before you buy any flowers. Also, wasps are going to stay close to these flowers. If you have a flower or plant that attracts wasps, try and keep your kids toys and activities far from this place. Wasps are not going to bug your children unless they are bugging them.

Hire a Professional

Wasps can be hard to get rid of if you have an infestation. While there is always wasp spray available at the grocery store, it isn’t always going to solve the problem. You can continually kill wasps, but if you aren’t getting to the source of the problem they will just keep returning. Hiring a Vancouver wasp control company to come in and remove the wasps and find the root of the problem is usually the best idea if you have a great number of wasps that keep returning to your yard regardless of your efforts to keep them away.
