Natural ways to get rid of wasps and flying insects

Build Wasp Repellent Stations using essential oils

Creating wasp repellent stations can be fun and also educating for you and your kids; it is easy and can be one of your exciting to-do lists this summer. You can build incredible wasp repellent stations through different ways and still end up with two cool results- prevent wasps from building nests and send wasps packing from your home.

Soak cotton balls with any of the essential such as lemon, peppermint, clove, spearmint or cinnamon, and place them in strategic locations around your house – you can also put them in your garden. Remember to replace the cotton balls as soon as they dry off.

Furthermore, wasps hate the aroma of fresh lemons and cloves, mix both scents but cutting a fresh lemon and add plenty whole cloves into the cut side, and then set the half lemon with cloves in places where wasps visit. Nonetheless, be sure to replace the lemon as soon as it withers and dries.

Cucumbers can also do the trick; wasps are repelled by the acidic components in cucumber juice hang slices of cucumber in places where wasps are found, and they will leave your home for good. Ensure to replace them, as soon as they dry off

Bay leaves

As inviting as bay leaves to humans, most pesky pests including wasps find it pungent. Eugenol and myrcene are extracted from these leaves; they are the key reasons why these pests cannot stand the smell of bay leaves. Just like cucumber and other essential oils, you can hang freshly cut bundles of twigs with leaves in places where wasps are frequently seen. The good news is, as the leaves dry off, it can be used to ward off other pests from your home.

Wasp repellent spray

To make a larger area of your home and environment wasp-free, you can make wasp repellent spray using peppermint oil as the key ingredient. Add one tablespoon of peppermint oil into a cup of sixteen ounces of water, shake thoroughly and then pour the mixture into a spray bottle, and spray to areas where wasps frequent.

Alternately, you can use cinnamon oil instead of peppermint oil, but if you have toddlers and younger kids around, it is better to stick with peppermint oil because cinnamon oil can irritate the skin and damage the eyes. Nonetheless, it is highly advisable to take extra caution when spraying wasp-infested areas. If you think you cannot handle, consult your local pest exterminator for professional advice. Otherwise, use the essential oil every week for maximum result.
