    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.

Keep wasps and bees away this summer. Put about 10 cloves in 1/2 a lemon and set out. They do not like the scent. Cut off the ends so they sit flat.

    Has this really worked for anyone? I am having a huge wasp problem right now and so far spraying has not been effective.

    When you have children and adults around an area that have a high population of wasps, finding a way to get rid of them is vital. Especially when those around are allergic to them. I am all for getting rid of the wasps!!

  • Renna Bushko

    Wasps are still vital in pollination. Some believe that wasps don't pollinate because they do not have hairs on their bodies which allow for pollination, but they pollinate using fine hairs naked to the human eye. They are also a natural pest control and eat nasty crop-eating insects. Because of this misconception, you could actually be doing your garden and local area a great disfavor!

  • Cydelle Klande

    bees and wasps are diff these catchers are great and ONLY catch wasps wasps do not pollinate anything

  • Karen Meyer

I fell in love with the petal aisle runner. I read a few tutorials and most people hot glued each petal one by one on to tulle. I love arts and crafts, but do not have the patience for that. My solution: spray glue! Worked like a charm. Also, I bought a roll of weed block from Big Lots for $5 then cut it to the size that I need for my long aisle.

You could get little plastic bugs and spray paint them gold then glue em to bobby pins!

Use vinegar to help paint stick to rusty metal. Just rub it on with a rag. Who knew?  So that's what I did with my glider. I poured vinegar onto a rag and rubbed it on to the metal. It dries almost instantly. I spray painted on grey primer.

Natural Oil Spray to Repel Carpenter Bees, Wasps, etc.

A bee balances two water droplets on its back as it perches on a flower. The picture was taken by keen photographer Agus Sudarmanto near Doha, Qatar. He said: "There is no rain at all here so we have to spray water periodically on flowers. This is the reason there were drops on the bee, but it was amazing how it was just delicately balanced on his back."

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
