NO, not WASP...wasp!

We found 7 or 8 little 1" diameter beginnings of wasp nests on the shady sides of the house.
I took 'em down with a broom, but I'm wondering if there's a way to discourage the bees from returning.
I hate bees.

Yup, they are out. I zapped about 6 or 7 last weekend. I need to take another look around my house on Saturday, probably have another one to destroy.

Get yourself to Homedepot or Lowes and pick up some Wasp/Hornet killer spray. It will spray out about 25 feet or so says the label. Spray the wasp nests at dusk when the wasps are less active, and then let it sit for a few days before knocking down the nests.

The spray kills the wasps on contact, and then any who return over the next few days will get killed as well.

Wear gloves and something to cover your face. When you spray up, some of the spray will come back down on you. Its not something you want to have too much contact with. Don't spray in the wind.

The spray is $3 or $4 a can, and you will probably want 2 or 3 cans.

Everett, now.
The neighbors say to keep an eye out all summer long for the nests.

Found a caterpillar nest in the top of a tree --- killed that.
Found some spider nests, too --- gone now.

I hate fucking bugs and shit.
