How can I get rid of ground wasps without pesticides?

Thanks for asking and we have a very unique response, penned by our gardening expert, Barbara Pleasant. Barbara has been using this old-fashioned method for years and it works!

First locate the hole in the ground where the nest is. Then, get a clear plastic or glass cake cover — yup, a cake cover — and read Yellow Jackets vs. Cake Cover: A Success Story.

I've been using clear party cups to cover the holes, about 15 of them. This is not working. They dig 4-5 new holes every day. Is there another solution?
