In this comprehensive guide, we'll share effective tips and tricks to help you prevent wasp infestations and enjoy a wasp-free environment. Read on to learn more!

Seal Entry Points

Wasps can find their way into your home through even the tiniest cracks and gaps. Inspect your doors, windows, vents, and utility openings for any potential entry points. Seal them using caulk or weatherstripping to prevent wasps from gaining access to your living spaces.

Keep Your Outdoor Spaces Clean

Wasps are attracted to food sources, so it's essential to keep your outdoor spaces clean and free from potential food temptations. Regularly clean up fallen fruits, spills, and food debris. Additionally, ensure that garbage cans are tightly sealed and regularly emptied to avoid attracting wasps.

Remove Nests

Wasps are social insects that build nests in various locations around your property. If you spot a wasp nest, it's crucial to remove it promptly. However, attempting to remove a nest can be dangerous without professional expertise. Contact Olympia Pest Management for safe and effective nest removal services.

Certain herbs are known to repel wasps due to their strong scents. Consider planting herbs like mint, thyme, and eucalyptus in your garden or near outdoor living areas. The strong aroma of these plants can help deter wasps from approaching your home.
