Summer is almost here and warm weather means relaxing at the beach, grilling, and enjoying family time. Unfortunately, warm weather also brings tons of bugs and bugs always find ways to nest in the strangest places. If you find a dryer sheet in your mailbox this summer, your mailman is helping you deter wasps and yellow jackets! According to Reddit user u/istrx13, it’s well-known in the postal world that dryer sheets help keep these insects from nesting in mailboxes. Wasps don't like aromatic things like eucalyptus, citronella and even cloves so wasps don't like the strong scent of a dryer sheet. Just remember to switch out the dryer sheet every so often so the scent stays fresh and strong.
