Eliminating paper wasps depends on your personal sense of aesthetics. Hosing down their nests from a goodly distance when they first start to build will work. You can't get much more ecological than that (unless your water comes from Hetch Hechy reservoir). If you have an odd sense of humor and neighbors, note that the attack pheromone of the yellowjacket wasp is N-isoamylacetamide, Industrial Chemist 8(12) 16 (1987). Share Gaia's bounty.
