Nothing ruins summer fun quite like wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets. These pesky pests can quickly establish a pervasive presence in your home. They're annoying, and they can be much more aggressive than bees; they're even able to sting multiple times, all of which spells out BAD NEWS. How do you get rid of nature's biggest jerks? And how do you get it done without harsh or dangerous chemicals?

It's easy-- wasps and hornets HATE the scent of peppermint oil. Mix a tablespoon of peppermint oil with four cups of water, and you've got a powerful repellent spray; it's even effective enough to drive the wasps and hornets from their nests, but without dangerous chemicals. The video below shows you how to create the spray, and how to build your own wasp/hornet trap with just a few ingredients. Watch it and learn the easiest ways to keep your home wasp and hornet-free this summer!
