Wasps nest

1. Do you actually have an infestation?

First of all, identify the places where wasps are most active. Little hint, look for nests under eaves, in trees, or against structures. It is often in these places that the main colonies of wasps are found. To help, use wasp monitors containing an attractant to monitor wasp activity and determine the most problematic areas.

2. Use traps effectively.

Wasp traps are an effective and environmentally friendly way to reduce the wasp population around your home. The purpose of wasp traps is to lure wasps indoors in order to trap them before they can travel to your outdoor spaces. Set reusable baited traps in strategic areas, away from busy areas, to capture wandering wasps. There are traps already equipped with a powerful attractant, or you can get traps without bait and put your own bait in them. If this is the case, we recommend the 1L non-toxic bait for flies and wasps which represents one of the best wasp baits on the market.

3. In the case of Chemical Products and Wasp Spray

It is best to eliminate wasps naturally. However, there are situations where it is possible to apply products to destroy the colony directly at its source, that is to say at the nest. For visible and accessible nests, use annihilating foam or insecticide sprays specific to this use such as Doktor Doom wasp and hornet annihilation . In rarer cases where the nest is located in a structure or directly in the ground, powder such as diatomaceous earth is a natural product which allows the wasps to dry out and thus eliminate them. These products, approved by Health Canada, are designed to quickly eliminate wasps. Be sure to follow safety instructions, apply the product at the end of the day when wasps are less active, and avoid directly illuminating the nest. In order to know exactly how to apply and use the products, it is important to follow the instructions for use very carefully.
