There are wasps hanging around the side door of my house. I see one or two a day and can’t figure out where they’re coming from. I watch them to see if they go off some where in particular, but they just seem to hang out. But that’s not the grrrrr part, they’re outdoors and in their natural habitat.
Except they keep getting in the screen door and attempting to build a nest at the top of the door frame between the screen and regular doors. I’ll catch one building the nest and it’ll have finished one or two cells. I kill the fucker and knock down the nest and stomp on it for good measure and the next day there’s another asshole wasp with the same great idea and a new beginner nest.
Is there any way to make the top of the door frame inhospitable to these guys? It’s driving me crazy and making me not want to use the side door because on a couple occasions a wasp has gotten inside, and I have a baby so I’m a big worry wart. But I’d like to use the side door because it’s a convenient way to, well, get outside.
Clearly the screen door doesn’t fit properly and I don’t really know how to fix that either. Grrrr.
