Wasps are sometimes seen as bees’ evil cousins, which is not far from the truth. The two insect species are related, and although many wasps only sting while threatened, it’s sometimes too easy for them to perceive you as a threat. Dealing with wasps on your property can be daunting. That’s why All-Safe Pest and Termite is here to help. If you need wasp and pest control in Fort Worth, look no further than All-Safe Pest and Termite.

What Are Wasps?

 

The name “wasp” covers a large group of insects, including yellow jackets, hornets, and species of wasps, like paper wasps and cicada killer wasps. Because wasps are related to bees, they can sometimes be confused. Wasps typically have more distinct coloration and patterns than bees do. They also have smoother bodies and can sting repeatedly. Wasps have distinct, thin “waists,” while bees are rounder. 
 
Wasps have varying levels of sociability depending on the species. Many types of wasps are solitary, meaning they do not form colonies. Adult wasps feed on nectar, but larvae are carnivorous and eat other insects. 

Why You Don’t Want Wasps Hanging Around Your Home

 

Wasps tend to have more painful stings than bees, and some people are allergic to the venom. And, although some types of wasps only sting defensively (such as paper and mud dauber wasps), others can be aggressive. Even the species that aren’t aggressive will sting if they are threatened, so it’s essential to be highly cautious when dealing with a wasp nest in your yard.

Five Eco-Friendly Wasp And Hornet Prevention Tips For Your Yard

 

Fortunately, by taking some steps around your home, you can prevent wasps from settling in in the first place.

 

  • Seal cracks in the walls of your home

 

Although wasps typically stay outside, they will sometimes enter a home accidentally. By sealing any cracks or gaps in the walls and ensuring all window screens are secure and intact, you can keep wasps and other pests out of your home. Sealing holes in your walls and foundation also limits the places wasps can build their nests. 

 

  • Keep food covered outdoors

 

If you’ve eaten outdoors, you might have had to deal with bees and wasps buzzing around your food. You won’t attract as many wasps by keeping your food covered up as much as possible. This includes outdoor garbage cans, too. Keep everything sealed up, and you won’t receive unwanted attention from wasps.

 

  • Avoid wearing scented products outdoors

 

If you’re going to spend time outside, you probably don’t necessarily want to smell like the flowers wasps get their food from. 

 

  • Put out wasp traps

 

Whether you make your own or buy one, wasp traps keep the insects from living near your home. This option is best if you’re seeing wasp activity around your property or trying to host an outdoor gathering and don’t want to worry about wasps. 

 

  • Call a professional pest control company

 

If you see evidence of wasps or their nests, it’s essential to call a professional company. Wasp removal can get dicey since that’s when they’ll feel threatened. It’s best to leave that task to the professionals. 
 
If you’ve tried wasp prevention but still see them around, it’s time to call in a professional pest management company. That way, you can prioritize your safety.
