Willow and wasps

Hello. Our pre-school is currently re locating and in the new premises garden is this wonderful willow which you can go inside (like a den). The problem is it is swarming with wasps. Pest control people have checked and there is no nest and we have been told they are attracted to the sap. Does anyone have any ideas how we can discourage these wasps? Thanks.

I have a weeping willow, several twisted and two plain - they don't attract wasps at all. Lime trees do as they have sweet sap.

I would get some fake wasp nests waspinator as this is what I use as my miserable neighbour has several wasp nests in her roof and we were plagued. Much better now.

Maybe its not a Willow? It looks willowy to me but I am no good with plants etc. Thanks for the suggestion, I will have a look.
