Use Dryer Sheets to Deter Wasps

May 19, 2021

The month of May brings nice weather. It's also the time of year yellow jackets, hornets, wasps and others return to build nests.

To prevent these aggressive pests from setting up shop in your mailbox, simply place or tape a dryer sheet inside. It's a trick mail carriers across the nation have been using to prevent being stung.

The scent of a dryer sheet is incredibly strong. Wasps dislike aromatic things like eucalyptus, citronella and even cloves, making it a great solution.
It’s best to switch it out every two to three weeks so the scent stays fresh and strong. Your postal worker will thank you!
