Keep Wasps Away From Your Campsite With This Pet Product
By Kristi Roe-Owen


Sharing your campsite with wasps can be a nuisance, but there are ways to repel them. Luckily, all you need is a flea collar, even if you don't have any pets in your party.
Most flea collars are made with ingredients like tetrachlorvinphos, permethrin, or imidacloprid, which may not necessarily kill wasps but tend to repel them.
Many RVers place them in the exterior hot water and refrigerator vent compartments since wasps tend to nest there. They can be cut into pieces and stashed in different spots.
Remember to be careful about leaving flea collars lying around because coming into contact with some of them has been linked to serious health problems.
