A Poison-Free Way to Deter a Territorial Pest

Seems that wasps are very territorial and don’t want to build one of their high-rise condos anywhere near another one.

When I first saw this thing, I thought it was really stupid. But surprisingly, it works. Seems that wasps are very territorial and don’t want to build one of their high-rise condos anywhere near another one. And it turns out they’re not smart enough to tell the difference between a fake one and a real one. So if you have wasp issues, go ahead and hang up a few fake nests wherever they usually appear.
