More women using wasp spray for self defense

Some women are ready to point, aim and fire if faced with an attacker. But their weapon of choice isn't a gun.

In fact, it's a common household product that costs about 7 dollars.

It's a going trend in St. Louis, but more woman are buying wasp spray as a self defense tactic.

It's kind of like pepper spray but it shoots farther and you can direct it better at your attacker.

The St. Louis county police department says it's better to use items for their intended purpose.         

It is also against federal law to use wasp spray for purposes other than what's listed on the can.
