Natural Wasp Repellent
There are a few different methods you can use to get rid of unwanted wasps in your yard, including:
- Removing Easy Access to Food: by making sure to keep garbage cans clean, sealed, and regularly emptied. Wasps are especially attracted to sweet, sugary drinks, so make sure to wash out any containers or cans before throwing them away.
- Plant Wasp-Repellent Plants: Plant varieties such as spearmint, thyme, basil, eucalyptus, lemongrass, wormwood, citronella, marigolds, geraniums, or pennyroyals around your home to repel wasps.
- Avoid Wasp-Attracting Plants: Plants such as sweet fennel, Queen Anne's lace, and yarrow are actually known to attract stinging insects to your yard, so make sure to avoid having those in your yard.
- Spray Essential Oils: Certain natural oils, such as clove, geranium, peppermint, and lemongrass, are also known to repel wasps. Simply mix the 10 drops of oil, 1 tablespoon, and 1 cup of water together, shake, and fill the mixture into a spray bottle. Apply the liquid to any areas you suspect wasps might nest.
- Spray Vinegar Water: Similar to the essential oils, you can also mix equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle and spraying it around the perimeter of your home to keep away wasps and other stinging insects.
- Set traps: Whether you make your own trap using sugar water and a plastic bottle or use a store-bought wasp trap, these traps can help keep your yard free of wasps.
