sivuch2777-120813-timo5Yellow jackets are a very common species of wasps that like building nests in homes, especially during summer. Just like other wasps, they are very aggressive and can sting if disturbed. However, you need to get rid of them in order to protect yourself from stings. Here are some crucial tips that you can use to get rid of them:

Purchase yellow jacket killer

There are synthetic wasp nest killer formulations that are specifically tailored for killing these pests in their nest. Research studies show that one nest can hold up to 3,000 individual wasps. However, these pesticides usually contain toxic chemicals, so make sure you adhere to the stipulated application instructions to avoid contaminating food and water in your home. Also, to promote environmental wellness, you can use an organic pesticide that is made from non-toxic plant oils and other biodegradable elements. A quick look at the ingredients and an online research on the same can help you determine if the solution is organic or synthetic.

Spray at the right time

Yellow jackets are less active when temperatures fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so this is the best time to attack their nest. If possible, do it at night when their visibility is limited.

Cover flashlight with red cello tape

Research studies shows that these pests cannot see in red lighted areas and using covering your flashlight with a red cello tape will make it impossible for them to notice your movements.

Wear long sleeves

Wearing long sleeve will help protect you from their stings as you spray the pesticide.

Remove the nest

To hinder them from reoccupying the nest in future, you should remove the nest once you have made sure the yellow jackets are dead. You might have to apply the pesticide several types to eliminate the entire colony.

And while you are taking care of the pests in your home, let The Maids of Cape Cod, in West Hyannis, Massachusetts help you with all your housekeeping needs.
