wasp controlThe easy answer is it all depends on the time of year you are experiencing this problem for example if it’s early April and May you will find Queen wasps waking up from hibernation and they will be looking for a nesting site. there is not a lot you can do to prevent this from happening, unfortunately, it’s just the time of year.

If you are unlucky enough to have a queen wasp that’s trapped inside your property you can always leave the window open and usually, it will find its way out.
