In Topic: I have wasps/yellow jackets in my plants

27 August 2018 - 07:22 AM

Well I grew up out in the country with no other children around and there were wasps in the yard. Making their nests in the corners of doors as if to say "Come outside. I dare ya, mother f**ker!"

 

While I did plenty of outside too, this is largely how I became a Nintendo kid.

 

Edit: Here's my reaction to being stung by a wasp.

Are your wasps aggressive? I've got a bunch out in my garden and these guys are efficient terminators of garden evil doers. They buzz all around doing their thing but never menace me.

 

I haven't been stung yet by these guys, but I also don't want to see how much they will tolerate me going into MY plants to harvest peppers. :lol:

Mustangfreak- how was the taste comparison between the two pods?

 

I've only had a sliver of just one and it was extremely hot for me.  :lol:

Good point, I didnt even think about it like that. Sorry about that!

 

Edit: And to answer your question, I have too many to list that are favorites, guess that's why I'm a freak about them haha.

there isn't anything specific that kills wasps without preserving beneficial insects. so...suck it up and be careful. maybe put some wasp traps near your plants? its irrational and over-reactive fears that leads consumers to dump pesticides around their houses and in their gardens. not to mention individual consumers tend to not follow label directions. imagine all of your neighbors are spraying their lawns and gardens... combined that equals a lot of pollution and off target effects. these pesticides wash into rivers and streams and do significant damage to the small organism food webs in rivers, streams, lakes, estuaries. all so someone can keep their precious lawns or roses alive the lazy way. so please try to take the least harmful path and if you've decided to spray realize that you are spraying your FOOD prior to harvest which I don't think is ever recommended. pyrethrins are going to be less harmful and persistent than something like bayer 3 in 1 but they still require radiation from the sunlight over days to weeks to break down.


My wasp killer spray is just water and dawn dish soap.
