WHAT ARE SIGNS OF WASPS?

Wasps commonly make nests underground, under the eaves of houses, and in corners of windows and doors. If you notice two or more wasps flying by, follow where they are going and it will typically lead you to their nest.

HOW TO GET RID OF WASPS?

If you spot a wasp nest, no not try to knock it down. Wasps can be extremely aggressive, and they will attack in groups when provoked. If the nest is near human activity, avoid the area until the nest and the wasp can be removed.

A wasp’s nest is very strong and surprisingly unbreakable. Wear protective clothing such as heavy gloves, an insect head covering and an impermeable coat such as a rubber raincoat whenever you are handling wasps. Don’t forget to wear strong shoes or boots.

Apply Scram Crawling Insect Killer according to get rid of the wasps. It is generally advisable to treat wasp nests in the evening when insects are less active and have returned to the nest. Wear protective clothing, if deemed necessary, to avoid stings. Using hand or power duster or other suitable means (with extension tubes if necessary), thoroughly dust nest, nest entrance and surrounding areas where insects alight. Nests in voids should be located and treated. If necessary, drill a hole into the void(s), blow dust in, and reseal. For ground wasps and yellow jackets, dust entrance and surrounding areas. For best results, carefully check nests 1 - 2 days after treatment to ensure complete kill. When treating overhead nests, apply in such a manner as to avoid drift onto the applicator.
