I’m a design expert and painting your porch a specific color will keep pests like wasps away for good
31st May 2022

GET ready for summer by giving your porch a makeover and deterring pests like wasps at the same time.

TikTok user @DesignBroker shared a simple way to keep wasps from building nests around your home.

In the video, she says painting the porch ceiling a shade of Haint Blue will deter the wasps from nests on it.

The wasps get confused and think the blue is the sky, so they choose a different place to settle down.

Popular shades of Haint Blue are made by Sherwin-Williams, Olympic, and Benjamin Moore.

If you want to make sure you can enjoy nights outside, there is an easy way to keep bugs from swarming around lights.

Home expert Rosalynn Daniels posted a video revealing how to easily keep bugs away from outdoor lights.

Making one quick switch, Daniels changed her outdoor lights from white bulbs to yellow bulbs.

The expert said that with the addition of the yellow bulbs, there was "not one flying bug in sight."

"I promise, it’s a game-changer!" said Daniels.

Doorways and outdoor dining areas are two of the most important spots to make the light switch as people spend a lot of their time in these spots.

According to The Spruce, the yellow bulbs can be used anywhere a regular light bulb can go.

Spruce up the lawn for summer by overseeding.

Overseeding, which is also known as reseeding, will repair damaged areas and make your grass as green as you'd want it.

In order to win at overseeding, you need to do it when temperatures are mild yet rainy – spring being the perfect time to do it.
