Tips For Dealing With Wasps In Late Summer

Posted on September 9th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

As the summer comes to a close, you may have noticed that wasps have been more active lately. This is due to the fact that wasps thrive at the end of this season. Keep reading to uncover tips for dealing with wasps during this time of the year. 

Keep Wasps Out Of Your Home

The last place you want to find a wasp is inside your house. You can prevent this scenario from occurring by making sure that the screens on your windows and doors do not have any holes in them. Since wasps are small, they can gain access to your home through the tiniest crevices. 

Do Not Leave Food Unattended

Wasps are not picky eaters, so they will be drawn to any food you leave outside. Once you are done enjoying a meal in the great outdoors, be sure to bring the leftovers back inside. That way, it is one less reason for wasps to stick around. 

Avoid Provoking Them

When you see a wasp coming near you, your first thought might be to swat it away. However, this will only make them feel threatened and therefore be more inclined to sting you. It is better to play it safe and avoid provoking them at all costs.
