Keep Spiders Away ~ My Slice of Sunday- not only is this a good way to rid your home of spiders but it really works on wasp...i had a ton of nests in my yard...they are nearly all gone after using this spray. You dont really need the vinegar...2 cups of water..1 tsp of dawn detergent...1 tsp of peppermint oil....and they are gonners, make sure to wait until dusk...thats when they are the least likely to sting you and when they are tired and returning home to sleep.

The best wasp/yellowjacket repellant for summer picnics: 2 ounces of mint extract. 2 ounces peppermint extract. 10 ounces rubbing alcohol. Pour ingredients into spray bottle and label. Spray down picnic area and play area. The mint is neurotoxic to bees and wasps. Somehow they know to stay away, but if you spray it on them directly it can also kill them.

Self Defense: Wasp Spray A Church worker in a high risk area was worried about a robbery while they counted the collection. She asked the police about pepper spray. They told her to get wasp spray instead. The wasp spray can shoot up to 20 feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close & could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds a robber until they get to the hospital for an antidote.
