wasps in veggie garden

Postby Link_crim » Aug 07, 2008 1:02 pm

Hey all, having a problem with wasps in my veggie garden, last week I saw bees which was a good thing. But now I can't even work in the garden because there's at least 5 wasps flying around any given moment. Anyone have a solution for this? Thanks.

also, I'm a newbie gardener, but I'd like to know if my tomatoes need to be fertilized by miracle gro (i found it lying around) or are they fine?

Here's an article on wasps from Frankie Flowers CITY TV

And one way to get rid of wasps is to take a small paper bag and fill it with newspaper, and tie it at the bottom, hang it up side down (maybe on the deck somewhere) so it looks like a wasps nest and when the wasps see it, they will avoid that area because they think another group of wasps is living there. They are very territorial creature and will move on rather then fight.

20/20 is okay, but I would fertilize with a higher middle number. I use tomatoe food for tomatoe plants. Miracle makes a product for tomatoes.
