Eliminating Wasps and Hornets at Your Facility This Summer

\"SpartanWaspandhornetkiller\"It\’s summertime, which means sunshine, flowers and spending time enjoying the outdoors. Unfortunately, it also means that wasps and hornets have emerged once again in Brockton. These pests have the potential to ruin the best summer has to offer when they buzz threateningly around bare legs and arms. To prevent the winged stingers from menacing your facility\’s employees and guests, follow these tips to make them feel less at home on your grounds:

Preventing Wasps and Hornets with Sealant

Stop wasps and hornets from entering your facility and nesting by sealing all entry points. Look for torn screens, unsealed vents and cracks around door frames or windows. If you spot wasps or hornets in your facility, watch them in the morning, when they are most likely to reveal their points of entry and exit. Once the culprit is found, seal the area to prevent re-entry.

Eliminate Food Sources

Keep garbage cans tightly lidded to avoid providing a tempting buffet to wasps and hornets. Wasps in particular are drawn to sweet foods, and they will continue to return to an area that once held food even after it is removed. Prevent them from arriving in the first place by keeping a tight lid on any waste.

Prevention is the key to avoiding wasps and hornets, but if they do become a nuisance at your facility, use a powerful insecticide to eliminate the problem. Choose a product that is long-lasting and will eliminate nests where wasps and hornets live and breed, like Spartan Wasp & Hornet Killer III.
