Safe And Effective Ways To Repel Wasps

Like honey bees, wasps are inherently harmless. They pollinate flowers and take an active role in the environment. However, they are known to be aggressive around humans. For those who are allergic to bee stings, wasps are even more dangerous. The key to controlling bees is to remove the hives before they grow. When wasps enter your home, treat them with natural methods that are safe for your home and family.

Safe And Effective Ways To Repel Wasps

That is the reason why in the article today, we want to share the 5 best ways to repel wasps that you should know. Moreover, they are easy and effective ways. If you are finding ways to get rid of them, these are the best ways to apply. It’s time to check them out with us!

#1 Set Out Sugary Drinks

If you are being harassed by yellow jackets when eating outside, let’s divert their attention away from you by setting out a cup or two of sugary drinks for their consumption. Cola or cream soda works great for this.

#2 Hang a Fake Wasp Nest

Wasps are very territorial and won’t build a nest near another wasp colony. Put up a few fake nests (like this) around your yard in spots where you spend time.

#3 Wait Until Winter To Remove a Nest

Queen wasp will die in winter. If you can wait it out and allow their natural life cycle to complete, it will but much easier to handle the nest when there aren’t hundreds of angry wasps ready and willing to defend it.

#4 Homemade Wasp Repellent

A dewdrop of peppermint essential oil mixed with a teaspoon of carrier oil (such as olive oil or liquid coconut oil) and rubbed onto the skin can help keep wasps away when you’re working in the yard.

#5 Use Plain Water

Wasps build nests in a dry, sheltered spot that is protected from the elements. You can encourage them to move to a different area (without killing them) by spraying the nest with a hose. Stand a good distance away and set your hose sprayer to a gentle, rain-like setting. Thoroughly soak the nest in this manner and repeat over the next few days.
