There are claims that a can of Wasp Spray is a better alternative for Pepper Spray for protection against attackers. Judging from all the information on the internet, this seems to be a very controversial subject. So here are some pros and cons to consider.

Legality issues: Carrying and using wasp spray is not illegal anywhere. This means that can be transported from state-to-state. It can be used in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Convenience: If you can find a can is small enough you can carry it in a bag or pocket while shopping.
Distance: Distance that the wasp spray cans cover is a plus when considering protection. According to the directions on the can, it can be sped up to 20 or 30 feet. This means that intruders do not have to be closer to you than to spray the wasps to become effective.
Accuracy: accuracy tends to go hand-in-hand with distance. Most people have had the experience of using wasp spray and know how easy and accurate it is.
Expenses: Expenses not always a factor, but common sense will tell you that the wasp spray is less than other types of defense products.
Effectiveness: Effectiveness is the most important factor when considering methods of protection. According to some reports, wasp spray is sprayed directly into the eyes of the intruder, which will temporarily blind the intruder.
Testing: To my knowledge, no one has ever tested or documented the effectiveness of insecticide sprays for self-defense.
