How to Prevent Wasps from Invading Your Home
Wasps in Orange County
In October and November, Orange County homeowners, businesses, and residents can expect to see scavenging Yellow Jacket Wasps hovering over trash cans and invading picnic gatherings and other outdoor festivities. A simple swat may send flies running. A wasp however, especially Yellow Jackets (a common wasp species in California), is another animal—or insect.
According to University of California, Riverside, Yellow Jackets account for more injuries and deadly attacks than killer bees. What can OC homeowners and residents do to protect themselves from potential stings, much less stop these predators from nesting in and around their homes? Read on to find out!

How OC Homeowners and Residents Can Fight Off OC Wasps and Rescue Their Homes
#1. Keep an Eye Out for Cracks and Gaps
Undetected cracks, holes, and gaps in homes are open invitations for wasps—and other pests—to come in and cause chaos. Luckily, a thorough home inspection and a handy sealant for unassuming gaps can keep these unwanted guests out.
#2. Hang up a Fake Wasp Nest
Wasps are notoriously territorial. They may think twice about nesting near another colony. Hanging up a fake wasp nest may be the trick to keep these pests at bay.
#3. Peppermint: A DIY Extermination Alternative
Research reveals wasps hate peppermint oil. As Huffington Post states, homeowners and residents can plant a peppermint plant in their garden and/or spray a mixture of water, dish soap, and peppermint oil on wasp-friendly areas like eaves ledges, crevices, and porch roofs.
