“Dear PoPville,

The last few years we have seen quite a few large yellow jacket like wasps (do we get those here?) flying around our backyard. Not enough to be a nest in our yard, but I suspect one is nearby. They used to linger along our shared fence away from our deck.

But, this afternoon while our dog was enjoying some sun on the deck, I noticed they were trying to get through the screen door. At one point there were 2 of them on the door at once, they kept flying into it to try and get through and there were a few more flying around the deck.

Wondering if anyone has suggestions for deterring them? Plants, herbs, traps, etc?”

Ed. Note: But remember if you see a honey bee swarm don’t panic call or text (202) 255-4318 or email [email protected]
