For the last few years bees and wasps have moved into our outbuilding. As a bee phobic I do not want them there! How can I deter them? Or is it too late - does the queen bee / wasp simply hibernate and come back? I have heard of waspinator (fake wasps nest) Shall I try that? Now? Any other ideas? Am very keen to sort this before it's too late as don't want to put up with them for another summer!

Mix 1 cup unscented baby shampoo and 10 drops of peppermint essential oil. Fill a spray bottle with the mixture and spray on areas and surfaces where you wish to repel bees and wasps.

There's also something you can do with a polythene bag full of water with a copper coin in it. Hang it up by the door. The wasps think it's a nest so won't go near it. Something like that anyway... YouTube it
