Here’s Why Dryer Sheets are Showing Up in Mailboxes all over Minnesota
Surprises are showing up in mailboxes all over Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin and sadly, it is NOT a care package with amazingly, delicious homemade cookies. Even a Crumbl Cookie would make my day. Sadly, food is NOT showing up but rumors are flying around that mailboxes throughout the country have dryer sheets inside. If a dryer sheet magically appeared in your mailbox, leave it, there is a really good reason why it is there.
According to the New York Post, a postal worker that has been stung multiple times from yellowjackets uses the dryer sheet tactic to help keep the pests away. For mailboxes that have "issues", he just puts a dryer sheet in the back of the mailbox and that helps the "satanic creatures", as he called them, from creating a little home in the space.
Thankfully, the yellowjacket season should be done soon since snow is on the way. But this will all repeat again next year, so keep a dryer sheet handy for your mailbox.
How many bills do you get in the mailbox every day?
Not exactly sure why I even open my mailbox up because every day it is just bills. Ok, right now, it is a lot of large, glossy political fliers too that I don't even bring in the house - they just go straight in the trash can outside.
