San Antonio, TX-
This week Laura and I celebrated our four year anniversary. We grilled up a nice steak dinner and shared it with our producer and his girlfriend. Everything was going well until several wasps decided to crash the picnic.
I killed two with my fork but that only made things worse. After each one I killed two more would show up. We finally had to pack everything inside because they wouldn’t leave us alone. You can watch me make the traps and replace the lights in this video.
I figured last night would be the end of our wasp problems, but I was wrong. This morning when I walked the dogs there was a wasp sitting on our picnic table. I think it was waiting for us because it buzzed our heads for half of the RV Park.
For most of the time I was working on the RV light wasps kept buzzing me. That is until Laura figured out that they don’t like peppermint oil. So she put a few drops on a damp paper towel which I wiped on myself. Afterwards there were no more wasps in my face. At the end of the day the two wasp traps caught probably 30-40 wasps. They were incredibly successful. That’s a trick we’ll be using whenever we have this problem again.
It has been a long time since we have updated this article. It is currently Sunday, Aug 19th 2018 and we have more experience now removing wasps from the campsite. We are now an hour north of Spokane and there are so many more of them at this location than near San Antonio.
We made an update video and found new ways to at least keep the wasps away from the campsite! Please send in comments for any of your suggestions too 🙂
