The best wasp/yellowjacket repellant for summer picnics: 2 ounces of mint extract. 2 ounces peppermint extract. 10 ounces rubbing alcohol. Pour ingredients into spray bottle and label. Spray down picnic area and play area. The mint is neurotoxic to bees and wasps. Somehow they know to stay away, but if you spray it on them directly it can also kill them.

Make a Wasp Trap

Who knew.... Wasp Trap and Killer - Fill the bottom of the bottle with one fourth of a cup of water, one teaspoon of dish soap, one teaspoon of sugar, and a teaspoon of alcohol. The soap and alcohol will kill wasps, and the sugar will attract wasps to your trap.

natural bug spray Brew a pot of coffee and let it cool. Pour into spray bottle and spray on plants. It freaks out the bugs and gives your plants (if they are the type that need it) a tiny shot of nitrogen.
