    Unknown to most people, but a cheap yet effective way to rid yourself of wasps and their nests is to spray WD-40 on them! That "red WD-40 Straw" allows you to shoot the nest from a pretty safe distance. Good luck with your wasp invasion, be safe. Hope this helps.

    Here is the best answer on the web for getting rid of wasps.

    Using a small brown paper bag, fill it with crumpled re-cycled plastic bags and gather the top and tie with a string. Leave enough string to tie to an outside over-hang. Just let the string dangle a little after securing (the bag will be at the bottom of the string).

    The wasps think that the bag is another wasp nest and will not go near it. They keep their distance. I have used this for 3 yrs, only replacing the bag twice, and never have seen a wasp.

    The bag can be tied anywhere outside - by the front and back door, a tree, fence - anywhere. Environmetally friendly.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    So long - little wasps!

    Raid wasp spray!!! It works amazing wonders. Kills the wasps instantly on contact and lets you spray from far away. We use it at work all the time. I work outside and wasps like to build nests all around where I'm working.

    If you paint your soffits a light blue wasp and hornets think it's open sky and won't build a nest. The down fall is sometimes bird will flt into it breaking their neck. We use this on commerical buildings where getting at them are hard to maintain.

    I heard you can spray them with some soapy water (I'm assuming you want to get rid of them by killing them).  If you don't want to kill them, I don't have any good suggestions.
