WASPS!

June 27, 2009

… in the box!
Don’t knock those boxes off the dresser in the shed… the wasps won’t like it.

#1 Pest Control, Rick Feller, the best bug guy around, was here twice to do his deed, but still, I didn’t want to get too close, the blooming bush close by was still buzzing.
That’s it, I am getting rid of all those ‘just-in-case’ things that invite this kinds of construction… 🙂

If you're having problems with wasps building nests in your boxes like this, try looking for any possible places where moisture might be getting in. If there's any rotting wood nearby then that would be one sign of moisture. It would be best to get rid of any rotting wood and replace it with new wood and make sure you do something about the moisture problem as well like seal it off or repair any leaks. Find out why the moisture is getting in and fix it. If the place is dry, then the wasps have no reason to build their nest there.

Thanks, that is good to know. But the shed is open, the elements can't come in, but moisture sure can, especially as we live by the ocean.
