How To Avoid Wasps This Summer

Summer is the season for sunshine, outdoor activities, and unfortunately, wasps. These pesky insects can turn a relaxing day in your backyard into a stressful situation. But don’t worry—there are effective ways to deter wasps and enjoy a wasp-free summer. And if things get out of hand, iPest Solutions is here to help.

Why Are Wasps a Problem?

Wasps can be aggressive, especially when they feel threatened. Their stings are painful and can cause severe allergic reactions in some people. Understanding their behavior and habitat can help you take preventive measures to keep them at bay.

Tips to Avoid Wasps This Summer

1. Keep Food and Drinks Covered

Wasps are attracted to food and sugary drinks. Make sure to cover any food items and beverages when you’re outdoors. Use sealed containers and always clean up any spills immediately.

2. Maintain Your Garden

Trim your lawn regularly and remove any fallen fruits from trees, as these can attract wasps. Consider planting wasp-repellent plants like eucalyptus, mint, and citronella.

3. Seal Garbage Bins

Ensure that your garbage bins are tightly sealed. Wasps are often attracted to the scent of garbage. Consider using bins with secure lids and regularly clean them to reduce odors.

4. Avoid Wearing Strong Fragrances

Wasps are attracted to sweet-smelling perfumes and lotions. Opt for unscented products during wasp season to avoid drawing them toward you.

5. Check for Nests

Regularly inspect areas like eaves, sheds, and garages for wasp nests. If you spot one, it’s best to have it removed professionally to avoid getting stung.
