How to drive wasps out of your home and keep them at bay. Simple and effective methods!

With the warming, all nature has been revived, as well as wasps, which are starting to appear in most places. To prevent their bites, we present some methods that will help you keep these insects away from your home and beyond.

Wasps are considered beneficial insects to the ecosystem because they are important for pollinating plants. They may be just as useful medically, as their venom is used to treat conditions such as autoimmune diseases. However, wasp stings can be dangerous to people and pets, so it is important to take steps to keep them away from the area where we work.

That's how you keep them at bay!

A general recommendation is to cover food and drinks you keep outside with a kitchen towel as they love meat, fish, fruit, sweets and sugary drinks. Also, don't drink juice (or other liquids) straight from the can, instead pour the drink into a glass and store trash in closed bags away from your living area.

Methods to repel wasps from the household

However, if wasps are still circling around your home, one solution that can help repel them is by spraying essential oils on surfaces. Clove essential oil, lemon essential oil, and peppermint essential oil repel these insects, but note that their effects do not last long, a few hours.

Another method you can use to repel wasps is to spray the insects with soap and water. All you need to do is pour hot water and dish soap into a spray bottle and apply the solution to the wasps.

Spraying insects with a solution of apple cider vinegar, peppermint essential oil (or crushed peppermint leaves), and witch hazel water is also effective. This combination produces a strong odor and repels some types of wasps.

To get rid of a wasp nest that poses a threat to you and your family, you can spray a special insect spray right next to it (from afar). If you are allergic to stings or the wasp nest is inside the wall, you need to call a team of professionals to help.
