We have a very large oval above ground pool with a deck built from our back porch all the way around the pool. We have had major trouble with wasps and have found where we think the nest is but can't get to it. Its down in one of the posts of the pool. These red wasps are very aggressive and have stung my three kids and neighbors several times this summer. We have tried many things to deter them or draw them away from the pool like store bought traps (didn't work) Raw meat hanging (didn't work) Wasp spray (only kills the ones that come out), Professional exterminator (did not work). What do we do?? The kids don't mess with them, in fact they are very cautious about it. A couple weeks ago my 6 yr old son bumped the side of the pool while swimming and got stung 5 times on his back. Now the kids won't go near the pool. I am and my wits end and need help, please , please , please!!
