I have Paper Wasps flying around my wooden deck and wooden fence at my home in Massachusetts. I don’t want my wife, myself or two dogs to be stung. Other than finding their nests and eliminating them what else can I do to get rid of them?
Actually there is quite a lot you can do. If you read through our WASP CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn we have 2-3 sprays that do a great job of both repelling and killing wasps. Typically they’ll avoid anything sprayed with the CYPERMETHRIN or NBS INSECT REPELLENT and I would suggest either to start. Later on if you find them nesting in between wood joints which are hard to spray, a dusting with some DRIONE will keep them away for months.
