Wasps: 7 smells these invasive insects hate


Beware this summer: wasps and hornets are particularly invasive. The reason: a mild winter and spring that spared them. This year, these insects are therefore even more numerous than usual and companies specializing in the destruction of nests are overwhelmed, reports TF1 Info.

“We are almost double the number of interventions compared to last year, it’s really a marked increase”, confides to the chain a insect repellent. Especially since high temperatures tend to favor the multiplication of nests and therefore of pests who wish to take advantage of our barbecue without an invitation.

Bees, wasps or hornets inspire real fear in some people who can sometimes lose their means when faced with this type of insect. This uncontrollable fear is called apiphobia and can be disabling in summer, when outdoor meals are increasing, to the delight of these little beasts with a sharp stinger.

Among these different insects, the wasp particularly inspires fear because it is more common than the hornet and more virulent than the bee. Fortunately, there are several basic tips to be able to keep them as far away as possible when having a barbecue, for example, as reported by Soluty, a specialized website.

While wasps are attracted to a number of things, there are also smells that they hate and which can therefore repel them. Discover them in our slideshow.
