Have you ever walked around the back of your house to see a massive wasps nest hanging from a sheltered corner in your roof? For a moment, you have a panic attack because your youngest child is deathly allergic to bees and wasps. What are you going to do?
Let’s imagine, for the sake of an example, that you’ve got a disturbing fly problem. It happens every year during the warm season, and you’re sick and tired of having flies crawling all over your food like it’s the end of the world and you’re living on a sewage heap.
You’re not a particularly dirty person, it just so happens that the climate in which you live is conducive to the breeding and growth of several nasty critters. You need some fresh ideas on how to keep hell as you know it out of your home.
For the Bees and Wasps
To start with the basics, you need to clear your yard of anything that attracts bees and wasps. Bee and wasp colonies come alive in the Spring and die out in the Fall. Luckily for you, that gives you an entire Spring and Summer of buzzing, stinging, biting problems.
Bumblebees form their nests in the ground, just as some wasps and yellowjackets do. Other breeds of wasps form their nests in the canopies of trees, or inside walls and underneath roofs.
A practical tip for you is to make sure that all of your garbage cans are covered during picnics and outdoor gatherings. The reason for this, is that bees and wasps gather all of their food from your leftovers and from the sugar left over on cans and bottles.
For the Flies
The internet is full of tricks and tips on how to get rid of flies, but how do you know what will actually work? Flies are a much bigger risk to us than we are led on to think. Flies are very high transmitters of diseases like Cholera, Diarrhea and Dysentery, and they breed like mad!
Sometimes home remedies work well, but what happens when you’ve gone through most everything that the internet tells you to do? That’s when it’s probably time to call in the professionals.
When Nothing Works
There are certain pests out there that are just extremely resilient to whatever it is you rain upon them in your attempt to reenact Doomsday. For times like this, it’s probably a good time to just hand the reigns over to people who get paid to exterminate demons in bug-like flesh.
You may be wondering if you really need an exterminator. Read up on the signs and symptoms of pests in your home, and decide for yourself if they’re really something you want to try and take care of yourself, or if you’d rather just leave it to the professionals. Best of luck to you.
