Bartlett Wasp/Bee Control
Summers in Bartlett, Illinois can be quite hot and sweltering. Families and people of all ages enjoy the Bartlett Aquatic Center where cooling off is encouraged and appreciated. The lazy river is a favorite among all the patrons, a perfect way to welcome the heat of summer. Afterwards, ice cream at Oberweis Ice Cream and Dairy Store is a popular attraction. With flavors like apple steudle, butter brickle and chocolate marshmallow, you really can’t go wrong. There is an insect that also enjoys everything sticky and sweet in the sweltering heat and that is the wasp or bee. Bees and wasps particularly love gooey, sugary treats that have been left melting in the heat. But they aren’t too picky, just about anything in your dumpster smells good on a hot day. You do not have to share though! We can help you keep these insects far away from your yard and your treats.
What attracts bees and wasps
Wasps and bees are attracted to you and your yard due to a few factors. First, they want to build their nests and hives in areas safe from wind, rain and hail. Your home and yard offers quite a few hideaway spots where they can build their nests safely. Second, bees and wasps can be attracted to you. Here are a few things that bring them buzzing close for a sniff:
- Flowery perfumes and lotions
- Scented soaps, air fresheners and candles
- Flower printed fabrics and clothing
- Brightly colored clothing
- Anything sweet and savory you are currently eating
These insects are extremely sensitive to scents. A plate of barbequed meat is like a dinner bell to them screaming for them to partake. Planting wasp repelling plants is one good way to repel them because just as they have their favorite scents, they also have an aversion to citronella, eucalyptus and wormwood.
