    We live in the countryside with a lot of lavender and herbs around so wasp are pain in the ass, especially when we eat outside. We can’t find the nest so we came up with this. Put a thick piece of baloney in the middle of the plate and then pour dishsoap and water around up to the half of the baloney piece (liquid should be 1 part dish soap and 4-5 parts water). As I was told, wasps are covered in some kind of a protective oil/grease so when they get in contact with a degreaser, like dish soap, they die pretty quickly. Wasps will go crazy for baloney so they won’t bother you as much, and so while they fly around it or eventually land and walk on they fall into the liquid that kills them in a few seconds.
