    does it work? we need a solution at our house by the sea, there thousands of bees around our table, we cannot even eat without them "disturbing".

  • Who Knew? Tips

    Marilyn, it doesn't kill them! They'll just avoid it because of the smell. But yes, better to use around the deck than on plants that need pollinating!

  • Marilyn Baker

    Please don't use this on bees. We need bees to pollinate our food.

The best wasp/yellowjacket repellant for summer picnics: 2 ounces of mint extract. 2 ounces peppermint extract. 10 ounces rubbing alcohol. Pour ingredients into spray bottle and label. Spray down picnic area and play area. The mint is neurotoxic to bees and wasps. Somehow they know to stay away, but if you spray it on them directly it can also kill them.

Homemade Wood Bees Killer Spray

You make these by dipping (or dredging) yard through a corn starch/glue mix, then wrapping it around a balloon coated with Vaseline so the glue doesn't stick. Once the yarn and glue mixer is dry, pop the balloon for this whimsical DIY lantern! I heard you can also spray paint it after it fully dries for a colorful effect.

@Delaney Parrish Bee- A little turquoise spray paint, some brass hooks (for feet) and an old kitchen grater makes for a kitschy and cool earring holder. Unconventional, yes, but we LOVE unconventional earring/jewelry holders- We should totally look for this at goodwill and make it!

Ok... So I tried the rubber-band with spray paint trick (didn't work for me)... So now I'm going to try this. I want a Bumble Bee look for vases for my daughter's nursery!

We used our go-to spray painting formula. Three products, easy!! Zinsser Primer, Liquitex in Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue, and Krylon Lacquer. And because all of these products are the bees knees, we ended up doing a single coat of primer, a coat and a half (whatever that means?) of color, and two coats of lacquer. I can’t possibly brag

Giant Picture - tutorial! b/w photo on foam board (Lowes foam pieces to insulate houses), blow up picture at Staples etc. using engineer print (not photo quality but good-about 4 ft x 3 ft). Trim board to photo size. If black edge wanted, use craft paint only. Peel off clear film over the foam so paint will work. Use spray glue to stick down (not modge podge). Dry, hangers on back and voila!
