Summertime means outdoor activities, cookouts, fun by the pool, and taking care of a vegetable or flower garden. While it’s entertaining to enjoy the many activities a backyard provides, one thing you don’t want to share the fun with is a stinging wasp.
To keep your yard wasp free takes a little planning but well worth it to keep NJ stinging insect control working at peak performance.
Safety is important when working with wasps. Unlike bees that don’t usually sting unless provoked or their nest is in danger, wasps don’t need a reason to attack.
Tips to Be Wasp Free
• Blend lemongrass, clove, and geranium essential oils with dish soap and water. Put in a spray bottle and apply to target areas where wasps congregate or where they’ve previously had a nest.
• Combine 2 tablespoons dish soap with water, place in a spray bottle and coat hanging nests.
• Planting a mint plant will help dissuade wasps in the garden. A more potent option is blending mint oil with water and applying to affected areas.
• Seal any cracks, holes, or crevices around doors, windows, siding, or the space where power lines or cables enter the home.
When you’ve done all you can to remove wasps but find you need the services of a NJ stinging insect control specialist, all you need to do is call the professionals at Stern Environmental and we’ll take care of it.
