We built our house last fall, and I've already found one wasp next in a corner of the eaves. I know that one of our neighbors has a huge problem with wasps, and has a large amount of exterior exposed wood (multiple decks, wood trim, a large backyard fence) which tend to encourage wasp nests.
I'm looking for ideas to prevent wasps from migrating to our house. I'm still very early in landscaping, and can plan for yard structures to be different materials. I am also very happy to add plants with repellant properties, or at least minimize plants which wasps like.
Hopefully there's a good, organic solution. I'm fine with pollinators, and the occasional wasp or two visiting. I just want to avoid being the new home for multiple large colonies.
Edit to respond to questions: I've no idea what kind of wasps, and am not even sure how to identify wasps. They look black and yellow, and sting. The nest looks similar to this paper wasp colony picture from Wikipedia, but I'm just using this pic for descriptive purposes, not fact.
