Wasps are pain-inducing pests, delivering a nasty sting if you get in their way—and for those of you who suffer from allergic reactions, you already know how dangerous wasps and other stinging insects can be to your health.
Summertime is peak season for wasps. They’ll make nests in the ground and on the underside of decks and awnings. And if they’ve set up shop on your property, you had better make a lot of indoor plans this season.
An average wasp nest can house up to 6000 inhabitants during the summer, so you’ll want to do everything you can to prevent a wasp problem from getting out of control. For starters, make sure to bring all leftover food inside and seal up trash cans and garbage bins.
Also, block off loose siding and other open spaces on the outside of your home.
