wasps/bees settling down

Theres a little wasps / Bee (Dont exactly know and dont want to find out either ) gang who have settled very nicely in my balcony window. Does anybody know what to do to get rid of them??

Dont tell me to use the vacuum cleaner... tried, ran inside my house like a hamster and got to know that it doesnt work..

Also tried spraying wheel cleaner at them and they got even more annoyed

Rolled up newspaper?

How many of them are there? Is it a colony? Have they built a nest? Or are they just hanging out, enjoying the sultry weather?

Re: wasps/bees settling down

You get a good wasp spray in coop. I used it last year and effect is still on as I dont see them hanging around this year as well

Re: wasps/bees settling down

Fill a jam jar with a small amount of beer in it - that should entice them
They can drown drunk And no. I am not joking

Re: wasps/bees settling down

I will try a few of your suggestions...

Theres no nest as such, but they have already eaten through my window since I can see some bits of powdered wood on the floor.

whats Vat o' Jam?????

Anti wasp spray will be great... will try to buy it.. and also will try the beer trick.. want to see how drunken wasps behave..

Re: wasps/bees settling down

If they have built a nest outside your balcony (and you rent) ring your landlord they will ring someone to get rid of them. We had a bloody kingsize MONSTER wasp trying to build a wasp under our shutters a few wks ago, and my landlord rang for someone to get rid of it.
