Reasons To Leave A Wasp Nest In Your Yard

If you were researching more natural methods to remove wasps from your garden, here are two reasons why you can let wasps stay where they are. These animals are wonderful for the environment and it turns out that they are essential too. You have to take care of them more than ever.

Wasps provide pest control

While they can also kill some beneficial insects, they can be useful for feeding crop-destroying insects such as larvae, caterpillars, and weevils. They are so useful in this regard that farmers sometimes send wasps as a natural pest control for their crops. This is a totally natural pesticide!

Wasps help pollinate

This is something you've never heard of before, but wasps really do help pollinate plants! Bees are much more effective due to their hairy legs, but still, considering the alarming health of our bee colonies, we need all the help we can get, and wasps help pollinate.

Of course, wasps that are very threatening due to their location (such as very close to your home) may need to be destroyed. If you or a member of your family is allergic to them, I would also consider removing all high priority nests.

When we moved into our new house, we had very aggressive wasps camped on our porch and on a grill left by the last tenant.

Fortunately, a neighbor who shares our garden with us got rid of them. There is a time and a place to do this, and this was definitely one of them!

Since you may find yourself in a similar situation as well, my next post will share some ideas on how to get rid of wasps without using chemicals.
