Hi Sophie

We too have massive wasp problems.  This year we got a Hyfegate which seems to be working with our smaller colony.  We got it from Thornes. The larger colony got too angry about waiting around outside, so we abandoned it on that hive and put rodent wire over most of the entrance to make it a lot smaller.  We also had made something like this https://www.thorne.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=7255.  But we’ve also heard that if you put some trunking for wires along the entrance the bees learn to go in and out via the side but wasps can’t figure it out.   Very best of luck. They’re a real nuisance.
