WINNIPEG – You’ve likely been swatting them away already and they’re only going to get worse.
Wasps are all the buzz.
Exterminators in Winnipeg are getting called to over a dozen wasp nest removals and infestations a day this month.
Entomologist, Taz Stuart, says August is often when we seen an influx in the pests.
“Days are getting shorter, there food sources are getting more rare so when your out in your back yard having that sugary drink or that nice hamburger steak, they do hey that’s high in carbohydrates and sugars I want to go to you versus the flowers.”
Experts say setting traps filled with sweet drinks or using insecticide sprays are the best solutions to getting rid of wasps.
