This is the time of the year queen wasp’s drop below the leaf litter to prepare for over wintering activities. They abandon their existing colony of wasps leaving working wasps without a leader.
Worker wasps try and find new colonies, but will be turned away at the door, because the pheromones do not link up. They will then take harborage around pools, parks and homes and become easily agitated.
To combat this, buy wasps traps, baited with orange soda or grenadine. Place these traps away from your sitting area. Eliminate sugar harborages such as dirty garbage receptacles.
