Is Wasp Spray Good For Self Defense?

If you’ve been told that wasp spray is a great home self-defense tool….I’m here to tell you that you’ve been told wrong. While I agree that having something is better than nothing, it’s even more better to have something that has been proven to be effective, which wasp spray has not. There has been no test or studies on the effectiveness of wasp spray on humans.

Not only that, but using wasp spray for anything other than it’s original intent is against federal law. Wasp spray is not supposed to be used inside the home.

Just like if you were to booby trap your home against an invader, that would be considered illegal and you could possibly face charges for harming the slime ball that broke into your home in the first place.

Pepper spray, on the other hand, is legal in all 50 states. There are restrictions in a few states like New York, Massachusetts, Michigan and Wisconsin. For more info on those restrictions click here.

Make sure you keep a container of mace or pepper spray by your bedtime at night and carry it with you throughout the day. You never know when it may come in handy!

    1. Yea I know, crazy isn’t it? I remember my great uncle being taken away in handcuffs after firing his gun at an intruder who was breaking into our home. Our state now has the castle doctrine but even as a kid I knew that was just wrong. They should had been arresting the criminal that could had murdered us all. He got away.

    1. Lol that’s funny. Many states now have the castle doctrine which means you can defend yourself in your own home…however, there are some limitations. So, make sure you keep your shoes away from the front door, Lynz. We wouldn’t want you to hurt an intruder 😀

  1. Sometimes I think the law is an ass. When someone sets booby trap for a would-be thief and they get punished, seriously ?
    On a serious note that fleet is meant for insects, though some humans are insects ?

    1. Some humans are as annoying as insects while yet others are worst than insects….so technically, the law shouldn’t apply in this case 😀
