Rapes in Lake Highlands: Protect Your Family and You



Wasp Spray – A friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high-risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office 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, while with the pepper spray, they have 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.  She keeps a can, on her desk, in the office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. 


Also, self-defense experts use this as a tip that could save your life. Val Glinka, for instance, teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School .  For decades, he’s suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed. Glinka says, “This is better than anything I can teach them.” Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray.  The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone tries to break into your home, Glinka says “spray the culprit in the eyes”. It’s a tip he’s given to students for decades. It’s also one he wants everyone to hear.  If you’re looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray.  “That’s going to give you a chance to call the police or maybe get out.” It may even save your life.
