DIY natural wasp repellents

These are recipes meant to repel swaps.

TIPS:

Remember wasps feed off portion, so keep all food with proteins indoors.

Don’t wear bright colors, they may think you are a flower and be attracted to you..

Don’t wear strong perfumes. Yellow jackets like sweet smells.

Wasps and bees don’t like strong-smelling herbs like mint.

Hang false nests: It will deter them as wasps are territorial and will not come near another nest.

THEY HATE PEPPERMINT OIL.

Here are truly four effective bee repellents.

Directions:

1. Peppermint  mixture:

Combine equal parts of peppermint essential oil  and water in a dish.

Rub a very small amount on your hair, arms, wrists and ankles or socks.

Do not to apply undiluted active ingredients to your skin. Do a skin test for irritation before applying.

2. Spicy spray:

Boil 2 or 3 cups of water

Add 2 chopped spicy chili peppers.

Boil for 2 minutes and turn off heat.

Let the mixture set and cool for 30 minutes.

Strain in a spray bottle.

Spray the spicy solution at bees to repel them and if they wander in your house.

3. Soapy peppermint oil spray:

Mix 1 cup unscented baby shampoo and 1o drops of peppermint essential oil.

Fill a spray bottle with the mixture and spray on areas and surfaces where you wish to repel bees and wasps.

4. Cinnamon powder:

Spreading cinnamon powder near beehives will make the bees move their colony somewhere else. Do this daily for at least 14 days for long-term results.

Note:  Plant MINT, as wasps do not like mint plants. Planting mint around your house will create a protective field.

All these remedies work to repel wasps too.

We recommend Mountain Rose Herbs as a reputable source for essential oils and the cinnamon.
