How Can I Get Rid of a Wasp's Nest Naturally?
- Friday, 04 September 2009
At Naturally Savvy we always love to hear from our readers who do things in a natural and organic way. Kim Hutchinson, a Savvy Reader, wanted to share how she got rid of two pesky wasp's nest, naturally.
Kim had great results with food-grade diatomaceous earth. Kim went out after dusk, properly clothed for the task. She checked the following day during active hours and found the wasps to be gone! After the first application, Kim explains, the traffic had significantly slowed, and it petered off to no traffic at all eventually.
Kim explains: "It took just a few minutes each night, but by the end of five days, they were completely gone. I used it on a second (very small) nest behind our porch light and it was gone after two applications".
Kim is one of our Canadian readers and purchased "Chemfree Insectigone" from a retailer called Canadian Tire in the pest removal section.
She found a natural product in the U.S. that can also rid your home of wasps. The product is in a white cyclindrical container and has an applicator at the end, which allows you to gently spray or dust the powder on/in the nest.
Kim wants to give credit to where credit is due. This solution was recommended to Kim by Barbara of Evergreen Pest Control in Ottawa.
