Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Yesterday a friend asked about home remedies to repel wasps and keep them away from her deck, so I will share my response here "There are a couple tricks for wasps. Place pieces of cardboard coated with a thick pancake syrup around the perimeter of your yard (far from your deck) it will attract the wasps which will get stuck. Another trick is to hang a few half full cans of beer away from your deck, they will be attracted to it, go in-get drunk and drown. You can do the same with lemon-aide or real lemon juice with a bit of sugar-the acid will kill them."
