How to Get Rid of Bees and Wasp

Wasps and Bee Control Tips and Tricks

Stinging arthropods are always a concern for homeowners, whether they are simply flying around in your outside space, have established a nest nearby or along exterior corners of your home. Wasps get easily agitated and if you intrude upon them or disturb them in their nest, they will not hesitate to sting you an unlimited number of times (unlike bees) and signal other wasps to do the same. These infestations should be dealt with care and the proper products used to make sure you and your family are protected from their stings.

HOW TO GET RID OF WASPS, HORNETS & BEES: SOLUTIONS' 4-STEP PROCESS

Depending on what stinging insect you are dealing with, the treatment and control approach may change. For example, if you have honeybees, we wouldn’t recommend using control products on them because they are beneficial to nature. But for more other stinging insects, the approach is largely the same with some modifications. Whether you have a small outbreak of wasps or bees or are dealing with a large nest full of these stingers, we recommend a simple to execute 4-step solution:

Step 1:  Destroy the Nest- Whether it’s a hornet or a wasp you are dealing with, you would first have to locate the nest. Once it’s found, treat the nest and eliminate the wasp issue by spraying an aerosol can of insecticide like Wasp Freeze. It is recommended to conduct the treatment at night as wasps are less active at night time and are more likely to be resting in their nests. Long pants, long sleeves and shoes should be worn for protection. You can also purchase a bee suit to protect yourself from stings.

Step 2:  Use Pyrethrin Dust - Nests that are located on the ground or underground can be treated liberally with an insecticide dust that is a labeled for that particular pest, like Drione dust. Cover the entry with adequate soil after to ensure they cannot re-excavate the opening. Pets and children should be kept away at this time as they can easily be stung. You can seal the nest the following night.

Step 3:  Treat the Exterior - If you’re unable to locate the wasp nest you can still treat the area around and outside of your home with an insecticide like Martin’s viper. Using a hand pump sprayer, spray the areas where you have seen wasps frequently land. While this method will not eliminate wasp colonies, it will help reduce the population to manageable levels. You will have to be patient with this method as the insecticide may not instantly kill the wasps, but will over time once they’ve taken a lethal dosage.

Step 4: Prevention - Keep wasps from building nests by knocking down nests that are newly forming as soon as you spot them. Make sure to do so with our Wasp Freeze spray in case there are any wasps which emerge from the nest, to reduce the chance of being stung for ruining their home.
