6Carpenter bees

While carpenter bees are considered pollinators and important for the increase of local flora, a bee nest or hive in your home isn’t something you’d want to let go. Regardless of how important bees are, you just cat live with a bee nest inside your house and risk getting stung every day. A local beekeeper can easily remove the nest for you which is an effective solution that doesn’t harm the bees. But if you don’t have access to this option, then consider using a spray.

7Wasps

If wasps have already built a nest in your home, then make an effective spray to get rid of them. Mix two tablespoons of dishwashing liquid and mix with water. Pour into a spray bottle and spray on the nest directly. This kills wasps or gets rid of them according to experts.
