In an attempt to repel wasps I have heard many suggestions to make or purchase fake wasp nests to hang in areas where they are unwanted.
I just want to say I have a terrible wasp infestation at my home, and there are hundreds of old vacated wasp nests all around. None of these wasp nests have wasps in them, The wasps will build new nests right next to them!
I hung a fake nest from my covered porch and had wasps climbing all over it and they built a nest right next to that fake nest as well. So before you waste your money on the fake nests or waste your time building and hanging them yourself. I just wanted to give you this heads-up, It failed miserably at my house. I have Red Wasps, Mud Dabbers, Black Wasps and Yellow Jackets.
