Wasps in the way

livettaAugust 12, 2013

I have wasps in the way. There's isn't a lot of direct light in my new yard, so I'd been working on clearing out dead trees to let more in (likely died due to crowding and lack of light). But the stuff that has to go is home to a number of littler wasps who are making their nests in old ornaments and decor left from the previous tenants in the dead branches. I don't want the wasps dead (I like the little guys), and I can't use poison sprays since I myself have a reaction to those. How do I get them to move out? Do water blasts really work?

if they are the type that make paper mache type nests...

they do insist on dry paper.. so if you keep wetting the paper.. they will go elsewhere ...

if they are not that type. i have no clue ...

wasp isnt much of an ID..

How to control a nest of wasps depends on which of them you have. Some wasps are not as aggressive as others and some nests are quite small and easily removed. A few wasps can be controlled by spraying with a cheap hair spray.
