No dead wasps
Dennis came home from Utah a few weeks ago with an idea on how to get rid of our wasps. We have several nests around here apparently, and he even got stung by one a few weeks ago when he was taking out the trash. It seems anytime after 10am the wasps come swarming. Even when I pull weeds they are hovering around.
So he comes home and tells me about this plan he found. He brought home 4 fake wasp nests. He said, according to the package they came in, they will rid your property of wasps. The theory is, wasps are very competitive... if they see a wasp nest in your yard they will go elsewhere to make a nest.
Somehow I just could not grasp wasps thinking this all through.
It took ours about 3-4 days to start working.
Oh how I would have loved knowing about this idea when my boys were small. We had to give up on swimming and playing outside at times because they would just not leave them alone.
I've heard they can be found at Lowes, and other home improvement stores. Or you could try googling them and order online. The ones we have are called, "Bee Free Natural Wasp Deterrent" Den bought them 2 in a package for $8.99. He placed 2 in our backyard and 2 in our front.
I have read that these fake nests do not keep bees away however. But the way I see it, we need bees.
Now if I can just find a cure for earwigs...or what we call "pincher bugs". I have never ever seen a crop like I have the past month or two. Often times when I go into the kitchen or the bathroom I will see one. I don't see ants, or any of other bugs in our house, just earwigs. Lots of them.Anyone have an idea for getting rid of them?
I really don't want to spray chemicals in our house.
