Why Eucalyptus Oil Is Recommended To Deter Wasps Naturally
You can’t be sure that eucalyptus oil will keep wasps out of your yard, but it could be a good, natural method to try based on how other insects are repelled by the essential oil.
It’s believed that eucalyptus oil’s minty, earthy smell overwhelms these stinging insects and masks their food sources, causing them to become confused and avoid the area.
Though there's no concrete, scientific proof that the oil deters wasps definitively, research shows that it can be an effective insecticide. Try it out the next time you see wasps.
