Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Wasps Naturally

You don’t need to use poisonous and harsh sprays to get rid of wasps. The pesticides used in these sprays are strong enough to cause harm to your pets. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather not spray such a poisonous spray in my garden! Thus, I found the following solutions that are natural but effective. So check them out.

Use dishwasher soap

For example, I finally got rid of wasps just using dishwasher soap and a hose-end sprayer! Thus, this combination might prove to be the most efficient. The wasps will go away and you and your family will be safe again.

Drowning a wasp nest

If you feel that you need to cut off the source of wandering wasps, drowning their nest is a good start! Thus, place a cloth bag over the entire nest and quickly tie it off at the top. As you draw in the tie, pull the nest free. The bag should be well sealed. Set the bag in a pail of water and drop a rock on the bag to keep it fully submerged.

Cut off their food sources

In the summer, wasps are attracted to protein foods. So, any food left outdoors should be removed or covered. Wasps will find no reason to wander in your garden.

DIY Water Trap

You can also get rid of wasps if you make a trap. Since water is the most efficient, here is another solution you can follow. Use a razor knife to cut the top from a 2-liter plastic pop bottle. Cut just above the shoulder of the bottle. Discard the screw top. Fill with water about halfway. Coat the neck with jam, invert it and set back on the bottle. Use two small pieces of tape to hold it in place. Wasps will go down the funnel to get the jam but will find it difficult to get out. Most will drop into the water and drown.

Also, a few drops of dish soap in the water will make it hard for the wasps to get out. You can also add a 1/4 cup of vinegar to the water to discourage honeybees from entering the trap in search of water.
