Wasps, bees, hornets, etc in attic
 
My attic is my nightmare. I hate bees, wasps, etc (I am scared to death of them). When I have to go into the attic...which I will soon to start a new project I am fearful because of the skeletons of all of the former, bee hives, wasp n ests, hornet nests that are up there. I usually only go into my attic in the winter because of my fear. However, I have a project that I have to do. What can I start putting in my attic to 1) kill what is there and 2) keep these things away forever.

Fogging/extensive chemicals are not an alternative. My son has breathing issues and I am not putting him at risk due to my fear.

You need to close off how they access the attic
Fill any holes, put screens on any vents etc

Your fear is a reasonable one, but with no chemicals I doubt there is a solution to this problem.

I bat stinging insects out of the air with my hand and then step on them, and I would not go into your attic. Escape routes are essential.
