Paint Your Porch Ceiling Blue To Deter Pests

To keep wasps and spiders from building their nests, paint your porch ceiling sky blue or a pale blue. This tricks the insects into thinking it's the sky. They won't build there.

There's a company called weitech, they used to sell in US suther lands, an ultrasonic bug repeller for flying insects, including wasp, I had 3 so far, my dog attached 1 that's why I got 3rd. They work, it covers 500 feet, so had two for outside my house. Well I moved & for son reason 1 disappeared, prolly old neighbors. I have bigger house, but unfortunately suther lands discontinued product, contacted company, said they no longer service us, bombed out, because I am petrified by bees & wasp & hornets, I'm like many people on here. Those fake nest & other stuff will not simply drive these evil things away, but weitech ultrasonic bug repellent is genius and I would pay anything for another one. I still have the 1 and it only keeps them off my porch, but front of house no protection. You can ask my entire family about this, they work work work, please weitech send me these again, please.
