The last few days the wasps have been crazy here! There are hundreds around the water trough and the horses can't even get in close enough to get a drink without being stung! They wait until dusk when they go to their nest.........I've looked around and cannot find a wasp nest close. Last year I found 2 close by and sprayed them, had hoped they wouldn't come back this year but no luck.....anyone got ideas on how to get rid of wasps around the water trough......

I had a problem with honey bees earlier in the summer. We moved the water source for a couple days and that seemed to work.

Ok, I will try to put out another one for them during the day, I usually let them out in the yard so I can fill up a tub out in the yard for them, today was so hot and I watched them all try to go get a drink but leave because the wasps were too bad.....
