Don’t Mess With Me!!!

by Sherry Riter in Safety

Are you opposed to guns as a way to get rid of intruders? If so, here is an alternative…

There’s a more humane way to wreck someone’s evil plans for you.

Wasp Spray!

A female receptionist at a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.

The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate. The pepper spray, on the other hand, means that the intruder has to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. That may give you enough time to call the police or get away from the attacker.

The receptionist keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray. She also keeps one nearby at home for protection.

Maybe you already do this at home. What do you think of this solution as opposed to pepper spray or guns?

Wasps, hornets and yellow jackets are rather ugly creatures, don’t you think?

Ehhh I like this post, I am a worry, and although we do have home protection, I'd much rather have something right at my bedside that I don't have to load, I am adding Wasp Spray to my shopping list!
