We Have Wasps

A few mornings ago I'm sitting at the computer when I hear a loud buzzing noise.  It took me a few minutes to figure out it was coming from the laundry room so I investigated.  In between the window pane and screen there was a wasp making a fair amount of noise.  A couple of days later I heard the noise again so went to check and look what I discovered!

Somehow the window screen has been pushed out at the bottom allowing access for the wasps.  The first step will be to push the screen back in tightly.  Once we are sure there is no further activity we will remove the nest and replace the screen tightly in place.  This method should solve the problem without resorting to any chemical control.
