With Spring here and Summer fast approaching its time to remember how to control wasps and bees effectively so you and your family and friends can enjoy the outdoors and all the activities that come with it.

The most important element of controlling wasps and bees is to destroy the nest. Aerosol sprays can be used to knock down bees and wasps around the nest. Pesticides in a powder form can be dusted on to the nest, and once activity has ceased, scraping the nest off the structure and destroying it can be accomplished.

Destroying the nest at night is recommended, bees and wasps are hesitant to fly at night. Remember to not use a light, they will fly towards it, if you must use a light, cover it in red cellophane, insects can’t see red light. Also, remember to wear full length heavy clothing.

In hard to reach spaces such as vents, attics, and crawl spaces, it may be necessary to contact a pest control service such as Earth Guard Pest Service.

Another key point of managing bees and wasps is prevention. Remember to keep food covered, keep tight lids on outdoor trash cans, and keep a sanitary clean environment around your house and yard.
