Wasps and Ants


We have had wasps sneaking into our home since we moved in, in August. They have been getting in around a chimney. We also have an older cedar shake roof, which may be working against us.
Can anyone recommend traps for interior or exterior use to try and mitigate the issue. Also does anyone else have any tips for fighting this?
thanks

Ants: Spray some bug killer w/ synthetic pyrethroids in their walkway. Wasps: I don't know.

Have you checked your attic for wasp nests?

Do you live in a warm climate where wasps are active during the winter months?

I discovered I had a huge wasp nest in my unfinished attic when I recently started finishing it. Gotta remember to knock it down before it gets warm.
