Wasps are a pest that no one wants on their property. A wasp sting is painful, and can even be dangerous to someone who’s allergic. However, there are some things you can do to prevent or get rid of wasps if you notice a nest on your property. Never try Do It Yourself Fruitland wasp control if you know you’re allergic. Unfortunately, an allergy to wasp stings can cause severe reactions and could even land you at Saint Lukes in Fruitland.
If you’re considering taking care of a Fruitland wasp infestation yourself, you must make sure you have proper protective gear. Wasps will protect their home by stinging. The best thing to wear is a bee suit. As most people don’t have one lying around, cover as much skin as possible. Keep in mind that a wasp can sting through light materials, and can even get inside your clothing if it’s loose fitting. Alternatively, thick overalls are a good replacement to a bee suit.
If you happen to find the wasp nest while it’s still small, you can easily knock it down with a broom. But if you come across a larger nest, chemicals are your best and safest bet to eliminate it. However, don’t use chemicals in an enclosed space, as the chemicals are toxic to humans as well. Make sure you have an escape route to get away from the nest, and any nearby wasps wanting to protect their home. Make sure you follow all directions on chemical packaging.
If you have tried the Do It Yourself method unsuccessfully, or simply don’t want to try it on your own, give Get Lost Pest Control a call! Our technicians are well trained, and would love to help rid your property of a Fruitland Wasp infestation.
