My next door neighbor’s have a small fountain on their patio and so the wasps seem to stay on my patio and I just moved in. The patio’s are located in the front of duplex. What can I do to deter the wasps from my patio or building nests?
You have a three options.
First, you can space spray with PT-MICROCARE 1-2 a day. This should repel them for several hours after each treatment.
But as you’ll learn, the Microcare may not last long enough and in turn, require you to treat at least 1-2 a day to have any benefit.
So to not have to worry about treating all the time, you could install an AEROSOL MACHINE on the front porch. Commonly used to kill mosquitoes, gnats and biting flies, it will also repel bees and wasps. Basically you only have to mount it on the side of the home up the wall around 6-7 feet high. Next, fill it with a can of METERED INSECTICIDE and then turn it on. The machine will release some of the same active as the Microcare every 15 minutes and by constantly renewing the application, effectively repel all pests.
Lastly, spraying with CYPERMETHRIN would no doubt stop them from nesting too. This product is highly repellent to wasps, bees and pretty much any insect so it will chase them away. But if they choose to land on the treated surfaces, they’ll die.
