What is a good wasp repellent?

I have a lot of yard work to do in a large area and don't want to get stung.

Natural repellents include wearing Neem oil and white or light color clothing, garlic and onions planted in yard areas, and oranges with cloves stuck in them are recommended. Chemical repellents, such as Black Flag, will also take care of the nests.

Surprisingly, baby powder. Sprinkle where you see infestations. Trace the parameter of your work area with it, put some in your hair or on your clothing. Repels other insects, too.

Its depends on if you want a natural or chemical based repellent. Naturally, household bleach is a decent repellent, due to the fact that the smell bothers the wasps. If your looking for a chemical solution, a chemical named "Nippon" (used for killing ants) works well.

There are many wasp repellent such as Nippon (an ant repellent) that do wonders on wasps. I reccomend spraying the area you commonly see them in and around your doors and windows but wait until they are not around!

Wasp B Gone is one of the best repellents available to anyone trying to get rid of wasps in their yard. You should use it about 1 hour prior to going out to do work.
