Yesterday I installed 3 fake wasp nests in the shop, 30' X 60' hog house that I'm using for a shop. There were a few wasps in and around the building. Today when I went to the shop, not a wasp around.John *.?-!.* cub owner wrote: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.
Todate, I'm impressed. Will wait until fall to fully determine the results.
