Starting A Vegetable Garden
Many vegetables are annuals and require regular maintenance: weeding, watering, tying up tomato plants and staking tall veggies like pole beans. It’s also important to learn good cultural practices and avoid spraying chemicals in the vegetable garden.
The best way to implement this hack is by slicing your cucumbers. This allows you to spread them around your vegetable garden or wherever you notice wasps buzzing about. While other hacks require you to grab a spray bottle and a few items, this hack is as easy as slicing your cucumber and placing the pieces around your garden. You can take this hack a step further and place cucumber slices on a homemade aluminum foil pan. When cucumbers interact with aluminum foil, a chemical reaction occurs that repels insects. You might find that this hack also works to deter a variety of other pests from your garden, including slugs.
If you notice wasps are mainly in your garden, focus your attention here, placing cucumber slices wherever you have an issue with them. If they’re buzzing about other parts of your yard, simply add some cucumber slices to a dish or aluminum pan and place them there. Replace cucumber slices as needed, especially if your local wildlife snacks on them. When you’re enjoying your outdoor space, be sure to have a few cucumber slices handy to keep wasps away.
