    wasps in the mailbox?

    Advertisements
    Any one know a good way to keep wasps out?

    We have been having angry red wasps flying out of the mailbox at us. I'm worried the mail person is going to get stung or stop delivering because of our angry friends.

    There isn't a nest, when we catch them they are trying to build one.

    Ive heard to raid the nest they build and leave the destroyed nest there. It will frighten other wasps away. I hope you can figure something out.

    How are they getting into the mailbox? If it's a traditional mailbox, try using clear silicone to seal it and help keep them out.

    My husband has made decoy nests before by balling up a piece of a brown paper bag so they think another group already has a nest in the area. I'm allergic to stinging insects so we have to hunt them down all the time. It works ok with some species but not as great with others.
