What's Attracting Wasps To My Warren Home?

June 15, 2022 - Stinging Insects

Wasps are the worst kind of stinging insect because they can sting you multiple times until they feel you’re no longer a threat to them. Unfortunately, this can severely affect the human body, everything from pain and swelling to anaphylaxis. Wasps on your Warren property come with serious health risks, and professionals should remove them.

Call your local Warren pest control for proper removal when you see wasps or other stinging insects.

What's That Stinging Insect Around My Home?

Stinging insect identification is essential even though you may not want to get too close to any wasp or bee. Here are the stinging insects you’ll likely see around your Warren home:

  • Paper Wasps
  • Yellow Jackets
  • Mud Daubers
  • Ground Bees
  • Carpenter Bees
  • Bald-Faced Hornets

You don’t have to be close to these pests to know they’re stinging insects. Paying attention to colors, body size, and shape will tell you whether you’re dealing with bees or wasps. However, the site of any nest on your property warrants calling pest control for proper removal.

What's Attracting Stinging Insects To My Property?

You may not realize many things are attracting stinging insects to your property. From mud daubers to yellow jackets and paper wasps, let’s take a closer look at why these stinging pests feel welcome on your property.

  • Moisture: Just like humans, insects need water to survive, and the more moisture you have around your home, the more likely you’re going to attract stinging insects. Consider keeping your gutters clean, eliminating standing water, and emptying pet water bowls when not in use.
  • Fragrances: Stinging insects love sweet-smelling fragrances, so if you have fragrant flowers in your yards, wasps and bees alike will flock to your home. Also, try to avoid sweet-smelling perfumes as they remind bees and wasps of flowers.
  • Food: Everything from sweet foods to protein-rich meats will attract stinging insects. If any of these food items are left outdoors, say after a cookout, your yard will most definitely have a swarm of stinging insects ready to feast. Always dispose of and store food properly after outdoor meals.
  • Other Insects: Pests like ants and spiders are food sources for stinging insect larvae. Outdoor pest control will be a great way to reduce the stinging insect population in your yard.

If you eliminate the very things that attract stinging insects to your yard, whether through more thorough cleaning habits, landscaping, or outdoor pest control, stinging insects will soon be a problem of the past.
