4 Ways to Get Rid of Wasp

Do Physical Removal

This is the most simple, and direct way to kill a wasp. Just use a flyswatter, and hit the wasp with that. It’ll only work if you’re dealing with a small number.

If you’re using a flyswatter, then you do not have to pay for the costly insecticides, but at the same time, it’s also very risky. Wasps are quick, so if you miss them, then there are chances that you’ll get stung by them.

Remove their Food Sources

Food, drinks, and flowers attract them. You can safely get rid of them by just removing these things which attract them.

You can hide the food and drinks, while the flowers can be shifted to the outer side of the yard. Try to avoid floral perfumes, soaps, lotions, and shampoos.

The protein and sugar can attract them, so make sure, any of such items are not present on the outside.

Use Traps

There are various traps available which can be purchased. These work great to capture these insects.

Many companies manufacture traps which capture them in a different way.

If you do not want to purchase a wasp and hornet trap, then you can also make a homemade trap. Making a trap in your home is not a difficult task, you just need a few things, and you can easily make one.

Many tutorials are also available on the YouTube, you can also view them.

All the options which we discussed above help to get rid of these insects. But, the wasp killer is the only best solution which we have.

    We’ve found that a tablespoon of dish soap in 8 oz of water works amazingly well and there are no harmful chemicals. It kills them almost instantly.
