How You Can Prepare Your Southeast Texas Home Against Wasps
If something causes you physical pain, it is only common sense to avoid it. Many people fear a number of things in life because they cause or could cause them pain. Wasps are one of these things. If you have ever dealt with a wasp sting, or have known someone who has, chances are you avoid wasps as much as possible. Even if you aren’t afraid of wasps, we would guess that you still avoid interacting with them because of your understanding about the pain they can cause. So naturally, if there is a way to keep these painful pests off your property, you would want to do so. We are here to help.
Factors That Attract Wasps To Your Home
Wasps are very much a fair-weather pest. This is why you hardly ever see them buzzing about after fall hits. However, when the weather warms up, you can expect to see them back, stinging and causing trouble in the yards they choose to infest. The thing is, they do not just invade yards at random. There is always a reason they do what they do. Here are a few reasons why wasps may decide your property is the best place for them to build a home.
- Dropped and over-ripened fruit
- Food scraps left out after outdoor gatherings
- Pet food
- Shelter under eaves and around buildings to build nests
- Sweet liquids such as sodas, juices, or other sugary beverages
Anything left outside that can be considered food for wasps, normally sweets or meats, are attractants for wasp activity. If your yard has these things, wasps may use them as a reason to settle down and build a nest.
Prevention Steps To Take Before Summer Arrives
Now that we have talked a little bit about what attracts wasps to your property, let’s look at some ways we can reduce these attractants and make sure your yard is as unappealing to wasps as possible.
The best thing you can do is simply look at the list above, specifically at the foods and liquids mentioned, and consider finding ways to reduce these items on your property. The fewer of these attractants there are, the less likely wasps will settle down and build a nest.
