Homemade Wasp Nest

While browsing another of my favorite blogs, Calgary Garden Coach, I found a great, simple, and free idea to make fake wasp nests. Basically you make a nest and hang it in potential nest spots to deter the real wasps from nesting there. So simple, yet I see the fake nests on "sale" for around 2/$5 or more. This is a project that requires zero crafty skill, I'm betting you already have the supplies on hand, and takes literally two minutes.


Take some old newspaper and crumple in balls. Stuff into plastic shopping bag and tie closed. Stuff this into a paper lunch bag. Hang up in the corners and other places wasps may like to nest in your yard. Done! Even with my "helper" this took literally minutes to do.

I am using a real hornet's nest we took out of our tree several years ago to deter wasps in my little greenhouse and they are paying it no mind at all. Also have two homemade 'sugar water' traps which they ignore. I don't want to kill them as they are a beneficial insect but I don't want them in my greenhouse! Help!

If you have bees or wasp near or on you, hold your breath until they are away from you. Your breath makes them attack. Especially hornets.
