Why are there so many wasps this year?

You’re just minding your own business, enjoying a meal on the patio, when the horde arrives.

 

The aggressive, black-and-yellow invaders steal food right of your plate and dive-bomb your drink.

 

Not only are wasps annoying, but their sting hurts… a lot. And they’re potentially deadly if you’re allergic to insect venom.

 

You may see more wasps this year for a number of reasons: favourable weather, more food for them to eat, even the time of year.  (Wasp populations peak in late summer.) Most likely, you have a wasp nest nearby on your property.

 

To reclaim your backyard oasis, the experts at Pest HQ offer these tips:

 

  1. Know the type of wasp. Mostly likely, your invaders are yellow jacket wasps but it’s best to be sure. Wasp species behave differently, and they build nests in different locations. Armed with this intel, you’ll know where to focus your control efforts.

 

Just don’t call them bees. Bees want pollen and nectar, not soda pop. Here’s how to tell the two apart: Bee bodies are fuzzy; wasp bodies are smooth.

 

  1. Follow proven steps to get rid of wasps. This includes using the best products in Canada to kill and trap wasps. Pest HQ sells a discounted bundle of these products.

  1. Make your yard less attractive to wasps. You’ll be surprised by how simple upkeep can reduce the presence of aggressive wasps on your property.
