Also, what should you wear to prevent wasp stings? If so, it is likely a nest or a source of food. Wear long sleeve shirts, long pants, and closed-toed boots or shoes. If you cannot avoid working near bees or wasps, wear a bee-keepers style hat with netting to cover your head, neck and shoulders.

What do wasps hate the most?

Wasps have an amazing sense of smell and detest the powerful odour of some fragrant plants. Fragrant herbs, such as Artemisia absinthium (Wormwood), Mentha spicata (Spearmint) and Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) are all good wasp deterrents and great for cooking too!
