How to Deal With Wasps and Bees in Your Home?

The number of bees and wasps in the UK is slowly rising.

In the past, the cold winters killed them off and they were only able to thrive in the summer but warmer winters means they are able to reproduce almost all year round.

Do not be surprised, therefore, if you see them around your home. If you do you have to act fast – bees and wasps can form colonies in a short time and cause problems in the home.

Not only do they leave painful stings on people and pets, they can lead to property damage.

There are several things that you can do to keep them from multiplying:

  • The best thing that you can do is to prevent them from coming into your home in the first place. Find anything that they may be attracted to and get rid of it such as left over food. Make sure to leave food covered at all times and wipe away any spillages. Keep your kitchen clean – dirty kitchens are a haven especially for bees.
  • Peppermint is a great way to repel both bees and wasps. If you notice them in certain parts of your home you can dip pieces of cotton wool in peppermint oil and leave them in these places.
  • There are some oil blends that are marketed as repelling bees and wasps. You can try these and find out whether they are effective.
  • You can get rid of nests using soap and water. Just fill a spray bottle and when the wasps and bees leave spray the nest. Any eggs inside will die and the nest will fall to the ground. The bees and wasps will likely move to another nest somewhere else.

If you have a big infestation you should not try to get rid of it yourself – you may get seriously stung.
