Do You Have A Lot Of Wasps Outside That Are Getting Into Your House? 3 Tips To Help So You Will Not Get Stung

Wasps can be scary as they sting, and it can hurt. If you have a lot of wasps outside of your home, they can easily fly in when someone opens a door. Once this happens, they can be hard to find and kill. Keep reading for three tips so you can take care of this problem before you get stung.

Close Up Entry Points

Besides flying in when you open a door, wasps can get into your home in many other ways. You need to find these areas so you can close them up. Look under the eaves of your roof for any openings. If you have a brick home, check the mortar to ensure there are no holes anywhere. Even a tiny hole is large enough for a wasp to squeeze through. Look in your attic for any openings, as well as on your porch and in an attached garage. 

If you get several wasps inside your home, they may build a nest. This nest will be above your head in an out-of-the-way place, such as in an attic.

Inspect Outside

Look for a wasp nest outside of your home. You need to find this nest so you can take care of the problem where it starts. This nest could be in a tree in your yard. If you have a carport it could be in the eaves.

If you have birdhouses in your yard, wasps will set up house in these. If you have a shed outside look in there for a nest. If you sit outside long enough, you can watch where the wasps fly to every day to determine where the nest is.

Contact Pest Control

Once you find a wasp nest, do not try to remove it on your own or disturb it in any way. You never know how many wasps are in the nest, and you could get stung. Instead, hire a pest control company to remove the nest for you. The pest control contractor will wear protective clothing to prevent them from getting stung. The contractor will spray a pesticide on the nest to kill the wasps. Once all wasps are dead, the contractor will remove the wasp nest and disposes of it. 

The pest control company can also spray inside your home if you are seeing wasps flying around. They will use a pesticide spray in most cases in order to do this. They will spray in common areas, such as around windows and on ceilings.

Once all of this is done, you should not have to worry about wasps anymore.
