for some reason ticks and chiggers do not seem to like me. Maybe I should try bottling my sweat and selling it on eBay as a natural repellant.
On the more serious side, I have found something that keeps wasps and mud daubers out of my shed, no chemicals, etc. It could be used around entries of the home to discourage them.
there are 2 or 3 companies selling these fake hornets nests, and they DO work. Wasps, mud daubers, hornets, etc. are very territorial and will not come close to one of these. I was having a problem with mud daubers in my 32x40 shed,until I hung one high up about 4 or 5 feet inside each of the main doors. In the 3 years since, I occasionally find a mud nest on the door facing, but nothing else inside the entire shed, and considering how loose the sliding doors fit, and the spacing around the eaves,etc. this is amazing. You can get them from a couple different companies, but I have talked to people that hang them on porches, under eaves, etc. and they all say they work.
