    For ground wasps, if you find the hole, simply put a glass bowl over the hole at night and they will fly up and not be able to get out, but because they can see the sky they won't dig another escape hole. I did it, it works. Just have to leave it until no more try to fly out.

    Another way, if you can find the hole. Wait till after dark when they are all in and pour a kettle of boiling water down the hole and cover it. Never had it fail yet.
    advice, like opinions, are best kept to one's self until asked for....

    I was using brake cleaner on the wood boring bees. Hit them on the fly and they fly a ways and then pitch over and fall to earth dead as a door nail.
    Listen! Do you hear it. The roar of cannons, the screams of the dying! Ahh! Music to my ears!
