WHEN the sun is shining, there’s nothing Brits enjoy more than a boozy picnic.

Every year, picnics and other outdoor activities are ruined by wasps.

But according to this expert, there’s an easy way to make sure wasps don’t bother you — and it involves the color of your clothes.

Adam Juson, Founder and Director of Merlin Environmental, spoke to Express.co.uk and revealed what we should all be doing to keep wasps at bay this summer.

According to Adam, one of the easier ways to avoid wasp stings is to ditch light-colored clothing.

Opting for lighter shades is the way to go.

Adam said, “These colors are less attractive to wasps.

“If a wasp lands on you, don’t panic and don’t flap around, a wasp will feel threatened.

“If it accidentally gets into your clothing, that’s even more likely as it could feel pinched.

“Keep as still as possible until it finds its own way out.”

There are other ways to avoid pesky wasps, such as not leaving sugary foods out.

Of course, going on a picnic is easier said than done.

Just make sure your food stays covered while you’re outside to keep the wasps at bay.

Adam said: “Wasps can be a nuisance in the summer, but there are several simple steps you can take to keep wasps out of your home and avoid getting bitten.

“Avoid taking sweet treats like fruit and sugary drinks outside, but if you do, make sure you keep them covered.”

He added: “If a wasp lands on you, don’t panic or flap around, this will make a wasp feel threatened.

“If it accidentally gets into your clothing, that’s even more likely as it could feel pinched.

“Keep as still as possible until it finds its own way out.”
