Crocheted Nest Has Kept Hornets Away for Years


For many years, Sandy Davis has had a hornet problem on her patio. She tried everything to fix this problem, spraying the hornets’ nest with toxic pesticides. However, the toxic pesticide did not work since the hornets would keep coming back.

Additionally, the pesticide is known to be harmful to bees, birds, and other wildlife, so she knew that she had to find an alternative.

Sandy began reading about hornets and other wasps, and she learned that they are very territorial. Hornets and wasps will not build their nest near each other’s nests and that gave Sandy a great idea.

Sandy is an amazing knitter and by using the talent of hers, she started crocheting a very realistic wasp nest. The crocheted wasp nest was the solution to her big problem. She was able to trick the hornets into thinking that wasps or other hornets are living where she placed the fake wasp nest.

After four years passed with the fake wasp nest, she hasn’t seen a single hornet.

If you do not know how to knit or are very bad at it, don’t worry, there’s a solution for you. You can purchase this fake wasp nest at Amazon, so just look it up and start living a hornet-free life!
