Wasps are pests especially when they are on the walls of buildings and trees or even underground. When humans respond in an aggressive manure, the wasps stings them. This is mostly during summer (late summer) as the workers search for foods that are sugary. Their stings are very painful and may cause shock. For this reason and many others, humans have come with different ways such as wasp traps of getting of these insects as stated and explained below.

Methods of getting rid of wasps:

1. Use of wasp traps: they helps in trapping the wasps reducing their population. Always ensure your replace the baits which attracts the wasps. Avoid sweet baits to keep away the bees fro trap.

2. Use of insecticide dust in the traps: apply at night on nest openings while wearing the protective clothing. It takes at most two days for the wasps to die. You can apply the dust again if it does not kill all of them at the first time

3. Use of soapy water: is a natural way of killing wasps. Put dish washing liquid in a spray and then add water to get suds. Use the water to blast the wasp’s nest.

4. Use of false nests:hang the fake nests in your homestead. This will prevent the wasps from building other nests thus moving them away.

5. Blocking underground nests: you have to trace the entrances as well as the exits to the nests. Cover them up with a bowls sealing them totally. This kills the wasps after a short period of time.

6. Use smoke: light fire directly under the wasps nest or trap. The smoke enters the nests and suffocates the wasps. This forces them to move out and vacate. To prevent the wasps from returning, you should ensure that you remove and dispose of vacant nests, seal any entry point and cracks around your house, seal your garbage bins and hang fake nests.
