Wasps -- What They Are & How to Get Them Out of Your Garden!
"Social wasps" sound like party crashers, don't they? The partying gang includes hornets and the paper wasps, along with yellowjackets. Did you know that a yellowjacket is actually a yellowjacket wasp? Some people in Nevada County call them "meat bees". All of us call them "unwelcome" when we're eating outdoors. You need some kind of bouncer to keep these social wasps away from your garden and outdoor parties. Tricia shows you How to Get Rid of Wasps in our latest video. Instead of picking up a can of conventional pesticide (which could kill bees and other pollinators), try the organic gardener's method of Integrated Pest Management. Look at the social structure and life patterns of the social wasps and see if you can disrupt a process here or there, to make them think your garden is not a paradise for wasps, after all.
