Under the Porch

If you are having trouble with wasp nests you might want to pay attention to something I learned this week. While viewing a home on the Conroe Keller Williams Property Tour Tuesday, I noticed that the porch ceiling was painted a sky blue color. The Realtor on duty told me that if you paint the porch ceiling a sky blue color that wasps see it as sky and will not build the nest. I actually have two active wasp nests on my own back porch. Believe me, as soon as we pressure wash my own home's covered porch I will make a trip to Lowes to purchase exterior sky blue paint and give it a try!
