anyone knows of a good product to have inside the house that will discourage wasps from coming in? it's difficult to not open windows and doors in this hot weather but oh so tempting when there is always one wasp that finds its way in but unable to find its way out! aaarrrgggggghhhhh!

citronella is supposed to discourage flying insects, but don't know if it works on wasps.

How about hanging wasp traps outside all the open windows, tp try and catch them before they come in?

Or...those yellow sticky pads for catching flies- wasps are supposed to like yellow insect screens on one or two windows/ doors and only open those ones of those electric bug killers that butchers have (think you can get them in Lakeland)

I really should take some of my own advice, as I am a fellow wasp-phobic!
