Here is what she shared:
"Val Glinka teaches self-defense. 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 Wasp Spray as inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray. The cans will 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, "That's going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out. Maybe even save a life."
