    I've noticed over the past few weeks that there are quite a few wasps hovering around my garden. I've watched for a while and they don't seem to be going into the garden shed thankfully, but they're not going anywhere else either.:confused:

    It's getting to the point where my insect phobic daughter is too scared to go into the garden because she thinks they'll sting her.:rolleyes::(

    Does anyone have any idea how I can get rid of them - pleeeeease!

I had a big one in my car the other day thought it was going to sting dd so i had to stop and i killed it. i's say people thought i was mad on the side of the road with a rolled up book smacking everywhere!! dd found it extremely amusing though

    Liked the tip of placing bricks wrapped in yellow paper away from where you are and dropping treacle on - so they get stuck in it!

    Maybe I should get one of those fly swatters and just run around my back garden like a mad least it would take Amy's mind off them! lol :D

    try this....

    i would suggest round the back of your shed where your daughter cant see them all buzzing!!! lol

    put a bowl of jam or marmilade mixed with washing up liquid in a bowl. the jam attracts them to the bowl and the washing up liquid kills them.

    Lol most of the time I can cope but it's when we're out in public, she flaps her arms about while turning round in circles and screeching at such a high pitch I'm sure dogs could hear it! :rolleyes::rolleyes::D Very embarassing! :eek:

    Mrs Depp, I have a fear of mice, it is something that I cannot sort out, you would be really surprised by the things that don't worry me, I would do or face almost anything but not a mouse! I moved house once because some field mice came in........ I was like a loon, sad!
