I couldn't find another place to put this, so bear with me.

I cover my bikes with tarps rather than fitted covers. Three times out of five, when removing the tarp, at least one wasp or bee will be on the tarp's underside. Not being a fan of either critter, I usually fling the tarp to the side and hope they're gone by the time I return.

The question is, does anyone know of a repellent I could occasionally spray on the tarps to discourage or prevent my winged friends from gathering?

Any advice appreciated.

If you want to go more "green" try cedar oil. Also will not have to worry about any possible harm to various surfaces on your bike.

"Killing Green"

Kind of an oxymoron...?

I like the cedar oil idea, thank you!

Circle of life my friend. Cover it in poison and nothing can use it.

Killing green is the way to go
