During the fall, many wasp species become more aggressive because they are busy preparing their queen for the upcoming winter, and are therefore more protective near the hive. This aggravated behavior is made even worse as flowers, insects and other natural food sources are depleted with the colder weather, and they grow hungry. All-Rite Pest Control offers tips on how you can get rid of wasps around your home and property this fall.
Do Homemade Wasp Traps Work?
You can make a homemade trap to collect the wasps that are hanging around you home. You don’t need very many items and all of them can be found around your home with ease. If you are ready to try and get rid of the wasps by trapping them this could be right for you. Start with a mason jar that has a removal able lid. You will also need to find some orange juice and some jam. Take the top of the jar and jam some holes in the top so that the wasp can get in the hole itself. Then take the jam and spread it over the inside of the lid while you fill the jar about half way. This will entice the wasps to come to the jar and once they are in they will fall into the juice and drown.
Can You Kill Wasps One at a Time?
This is not an ideal way to take care of wasps but some people choose to handle it one at a time. This is very time consuming and you may never get to the end of the problem. Swatting at one wasp at a time will take care of one but the rest are running free. You also have to take the time to wait for them to land and have great aim.
Chemicals to Get Rid of Wasps?
