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!
