Pest Solutions for Wasps in Tennessee
Finding wasps flying around your yard is no fun, but DIY wasp control methods are rarely effective. In fact, because social wasps found around Tennessee are territorial, trying to eradicate a nest can leave you directly in harm’s way—especially if you or one of your family members are allergic to wasp stings. Even if your backyard barbecue or patio party is in full swing, it’s best to leave any nearby wasps’ nests alone until U.S. Pest Protection can eliminate these harmful insects safely.
Avoid DIY Wasp Control Methods
When wasps are buzzing around a hive near your home, your first instinct might be to grab your garden hose and start spraying. Unfortunately, flooding a hive with water simply isn’t a safe or effective solution. When wasps are sprayed with water, they become aggravated and can begin to attack. Plus, when in distress, wasps release a chemical pheromone that calls in other colony members to help protect the hive. Spraying a hive also doesn’t completely dismantle the structure, which means wasps could return once it dries out.
Another dangerous DIY wasp control method to avoid is wasp spray. Even if you eliminate a portion of the colony, these wasps will still release a chemical pheromone that could last in the area for weeks and draw the attention of other wasps or insects. Wasp sprays contain toxic chemicals that could harm other, more beneficial bugs in your area like bees, so it’s best to avoid them as much as possible.
