How to Avoid a Wasp Problem

Dealing with a wasp infestation and nest can be incredibly stressful and disruptive. To help you avoid this problem altogether, we have compiled a list of effective preventive measures. By following these steps, you can secure your property and minimize the chances of a wasp infestation.

Secure Your Property:
Ensure the safety of your property by keeping windows shut. If you need to have them open, consider using flyscreens whenever possible. This will act as a barrier, preventing wasps from entering your home.

Properly Maintain Outside Bins:
To discourage wasps from congregating near your property, make sure that your outside bin lids fit securely. Additionally, promptly clear any food waste or sugary spillages from the surrounding areas.

Utilise Wasp-Repelling Scents:
Certain scents are known to repel wasps, including eucalyptus, mint, and wormwood. When engaging in outdoor dining, try sprinkling a few drops of eucalyptus oil around the table. Alternatively, having a mint plant nearby can also serve as a natural deterrent. Plus, it adds a refreshing touch to your outdoor experience (perfect for enjoying a glass of Pimms too!).

Regular Inspections:
Wasps’ nests start off as small as a golf ball but can quickly grow to the size of a football. To prevent a potential infestation, conduct regular inspections of areas such as sheds, garages, lofts, and roof eaves, particularly at the beginning of the season (around May).

By following these proactive steps, you can significantly reduce the likelihood of a wasp problem on your property. Take control of the situation and enjoy a wasp-free environment throughout the year.
