4 Tips For Dealing With a Wasp Problem

4 Tips For Dealing With a Wasp Problem

Wasp Problem

The most common household pests that residents of cities – large and small – invariably must deal with emerge in cycles and change according to the seasons and the atmospheric conditions of a given year. One year, for instance, a home may be inundated with centipedes, millipedes, and spiders, while the next year, extreme problems with carpenter ants and fruit flies can start for what seems like no reason at all – in each and every case, some kind of pest control is necessitated

There is one pest, however, that seems to be present every year: wasps. They are not only incredibly persistent, but they are extremely aggressive, territorial, destructive to homes and trees, presenting a frightening danger to children and pets – in other words, the wasp control services that are required to deal with such a problem must be performed by highly specialized experts, who are able to sufficiently cope with a rather menacing problem; indeed, massive wasp populations are difficult to control, but homeowners can take certain steps to minimize the risk of wasps nesting on their property.

1. Plan Ahead

The best way to deal with a wasp problem is by starting preventative measures early in warm seasons. Some wasps like the bald-faced hornet can hibernate through winter months. When it becomes warmer, nonetheless, the undeveloped larvae will re-animate and grow into workers; thus, DIY wasp nest removal should only be done if the nest is no bigger than a golf ball. Taking care of small nests early can minimize wasp populations over the course of a season. It’s best to use organic sprays and powders; if there are no adult wasps present, “squishing” a nest is also effective.

2. Be Mindful Of Food And Wasp Preferences

Unlike honey bees, wasps are not attracted to pollens. They are quite omnivorous, and constantly searching for sugar and protein sources. Though it is fun to have events like barbeques and picnics, minimizing the amount of food exposed outdoors is essential. This is especially important for raw and cooked meats, alike. Wasps are also constantly looking for water supplies. Lessening the amount of standing water in a yard is incredibly effective; birdbaths, rainwater barrels, and other things that can act as a reservoir ought to be removed if one is to ensure wasp-prevention.

3. Consider Spots Where Nests Are A Possibility

Wasps are also opportunists when it comes to finding suitable locations to build a nest. One of the most common places wasps will start a nest is underneath loose house siding. Even if a siding strip is pulled away from the wall only a few centimeters, wasps will move in. In the spring, take time to inspect and repair all loose siding and other home features that wasps can creep into.

4. Hire A Professional – Easily And Quickly

Most wasp infestations are too risky for homeowners to handle on their own. In these cases, an excellent and reputable wasp nest removal service should be hired. These companies use environmentally safe and diverse methods of removing nests, while educating homeowners about preventing further infestations.

The best pest-control companies in the Greater Toronto Area, for instance, employ technicians who are rigorously vetted and fully licensed by Ontario’s Ministry of Environment; additionally, they must possess up-to-date extermination cards. Exterminators, additionally, ought to provide full-service inspections, extractions, and follow-up checks for the entire year – dedication isn’t just a benefit, it’s a necessity. They will also offer free quotes over the phone for homeowners with an emergency wasp problem. The surest way to deal with a problem like wasps, is, of course, to let professional exterminators do the job correctly the first time.

When You Give A California Girl Texas Weather

Why Texas weather sucks.

Monday: shorts and a T-shirt.

Tuesday: winter coat.

Wednesday: beach clothes.

Thursday: leggings or jeans.

Friday: rain jacket and boots.

Essentially wearing flip flops and boots in the same week.

This is an accurate representation of Texas weather.

It is so bizarre how fast the weather in Texas changes it mind. One day you see sun, the next day you see lightning. It’s one thing to check the weather app once a day, but it’s another to check the weather app every hour to make sure you’re prepared for the very near future.

I’m trying really hard to like Texas, but its weather is not making it easy. I’m used to more consistent weather in California. Maybe I’ve just been spoiled these past few years. Either way, I would appreciate if Texas could be more stable when it comes to weather — especially as a freshman living in a dorm. In the morning, I’m wearing multiple layers, then I start sweating towards the afternoon, and by the end of the day, I regret not bringing an umbrella.

As inconvenient as Texas weather has been so far, and will be, the mix of weather sometimes pulls through. Last month, we checked our weather, and it said that there would be a snow storm. We received the best notification that said that all classes were canceled due to the snow storm. I was so ready, as this was going to be my first snow day ever. I woke up the next day and I took one look out the window to see absolutely nothing except dead grass. As disappointing as that experience was, at least I got a day off class to relax.

Texas weather needs to work on making up its mind, at least for the week. With all the mix of weather these past few weeks, I felt compelled to write about how aggravating this whole experience has been for a California-raised girl. But I guess it’s just part of the out-of-state experience and I will continue to embrace it.
