Bugs and pests Wasps

Submitted by Franzipan

Keep them at bay with a clove of garlic. Slit the clove and hang it form your open window or in a room. You won't smell it but they will.

wasp free summer Comments By: relieved mother on 2005-05-03
Thanks for this tip. I spent most of last summer chasing wasps around the house. This year my son may be able to play safely without his mum running around like a total fool.

I like your idea about the garlic & wasps! Would hummingbirds or other animals be offended by the smell of the garlic?

Surely this would only work for vampire wasps! Seriously though, I think we're in for a waspy autumn. Find their nests by duting wasps with flour - use a tea-strainer isf you still have one) and watching where they go.
