5 tips for keeping wasps out of your yard
Struggling with wasps but don't want to use toxic chemicals around your lawn, home, or family? We have got you covered. Here are 5 tips for keeping wasps out of your yard without harsh chemicals.
Prevention is the most effective form of wasp control. Removing or sealing items that attract wasps like pet food, bird feeders, and food scraps is essential.
TREAT YOUR LAWN
Using a non-toxic, plant-safe pesticide like PCO Choice, treat your entire lawn, including shrubbery and bases of trees. Repeat monthly, or more often as needed.
GROW WASP-REPELLING PLANTS
Some fragrant plants like mint, citronella, thyme, eucalyptus and wormwood are known to naturally repel wasps. Plant them throughout high traffic wasp areas and wherever you and your family spend the most time outside.
SPRAY WASPS AND NESTS
Spray wasps and their nests directly with Cedarcide Original to kill them on contact.
HANG FALSE NESTS
Wasps are territorial and so they tend to avoid areas where another colony has already built a nest. Which is why hanging a few false nests can deter wasps or get an active nest to relocate.
Make your own false nests at home by filling a brown paper lunch bag with crumpled newspapers. Tie off the top of the bags and hang them near known wasp trouble areas, such as patios, eaves, and doorways.
