Effective Tips to Keep Wasps Away From Your Business

If you own a business, particularly one that serves food outdoors, you know how quickly a wasp infestation can drive customers away. Drawn to sweets and garbage, wasps tend to swarm around dumpsters and trash cans, causing a menace to your guests and patrons. Wasps are naturally aggressive and can detract from your business in the summer months.

So if you’ve been seeing guests and employees swatting at these narrow-waisted, smooth, shiny, and brightly-colored winged insects, you need to reach out to your experienced Chandler AZ wasp exterminators right away.

Here are a few tips in the meantime to keep these pesky pests away from your business this summer.

Clean the Dumpster Site

A clean dumpster isn’t enough to keep wasps from foraging for spills and sweets. You also have to clean and wash the surrounding dumpster pad and entire area near the dumpster unit itself.

Reduce Spills

Be sure to double-bag garbage and trash, sealing it tightly. Be careful when placing bags in the dumpster so they don’t snag, rip, or leak. Pick up the bags on the way to the dumpster instead of dragging them.

Empty and Clean Trash Containers Daily

Empty dumpsters and trash containers more frequently once the warm weather hits, as this is peak wasp season. Don’t overfill your dumpsters. Empty outdoor trash containers at closing time every day, then clean them out as well as the surrounding area, especially if there are sweet liquids or food inside. That’s because wasps go out looking for food very early in the morning. Best that they don’t find anything on their morning scout session!

Clean Outdoor Spills and Food Debris Immediately

Foraging wasps can quickly discover food and then will signal other wasps to follow. Clean up spills and food debris right away. Not only does a clean work site prevent wasps, it also prevents flies, ants, rodents, birds, and wildlife.

Call a Professional For Wasp Nest Removal

If you see a wasp nest on your business property, leave it alone and call a professional exterminator in Phoenix AZ. Don’t seal the entrance to the nest, attempt to kill wasps with aerosol insecticides, or swat at them, as these actions can make the situation worse. Be aware that not all nests are up high – some may be underground or in unexpected voids. Your Phoenix pest control technician can thoroughly inspect the area and properly remove the wasp nest with minimal disruption to your business.
