I am all for pollinator bees flying around my yard. They are helpfully pollinating my garden. However, yellow jackets and wasps are not welcome near my house; they are simply building nests and posing a continual stinging threat to my family. So whenever we see a nest, my first reaction is to get some spray to get rid of the nest. I spray, the wasps and hornets float around and then eventually fly off. For years, I have used Raid because it works. However, I have long wanted to use a more environmentally friendly option.
The last time we had wasps, I saw an “eco-friendly” wasp spray in the grocery store-EcoSmart Organic Insecticide. I was dubious it would work, but I tried it. To my surprise, the Eco-Smart actually worked better than the Raid did! The wasps flew away much faster then previously, and I used less spray to do the job. I also had less residue dripping down from the nest. One can of spray got rid of 3 separate nests! I love the fact that I now have an “”eco-smart” option to get rid of wasps. Hallelujah!
