Keep Wasps Away With a Brown Paper Bag
Wasps are unfriendly guests at everyone’s house. Over at Household Hacker, they recommend using a brown grocery sack to trick wasps into staying away. There are some species of wasps that tend to avoid a pre-existing wasp’s nest, so by crumpling up a brown paper sack to resemble a nest, they may be tricked into avoiding that location.
1 – Take the brown paper bag and stuff it with some newspapers or more paper bags.
2 – Tie the top off with string, or tape it closed,
3 – Crinkle up the bag so that it resembles a wasp nest.
4 – Hang it in an area that you wish to keep wasp-free and you’re done!
Wasps will normally stay away from the vicinity of the fake paper bag nest because they don’t like confrontation with other wasps.
