How Do I Keep Wasps And Hornets Off My New Deck And Off The Vinyl Siding Of My New Home?

Just bought a house in jan , new construction…I have wasps and hornets all around the house….the yellow jackets are trying to make a nest on the deck and I have no idea where the wasps are trying but they are landing on the vinyl siding and around the windows.
I have used the commercial wasp sprays but they keep coming back.
Thanks in advance.

    Please, call Terminix or someone like that, & let them come to your home to spray. It will get rid of them. The guy from Terminix comes on a regular basis to my home to spray inside & out, or wherever the insect problems are. It’s worth the money, with their expertise. It’s not that expensive either.

    I am extremely chemically sensitive and can’t use any poisons or chemicals in my life– and I am allergic to bees too, so I have had to learn about ways to get rid of them .
    Believe it or not, these things
    REALLY work.
    Apparenly bees are territorial, and won’t go on each others turf.
    You don’t need to get them from the fancy alternative living store, though, you can make them out of paper mache, or whatever. As long as it looks “good enough” to the bees.
    Good luck!

    .You can also make a fake nest using a lunch-sack-size brown paper bag. Just blow it up, like a balloon, twist closed, and hang. I’ve seen some with holes poked in them to make them look more realistic, but I don’t know if that is necessary.
