Wasp nest in greenhouse-help

I had a wasp nest in the greenhouse inside an opened cardboard box which I have removed but the wasps are still circling where it was. Cannot spray as GH full of plants. Any ideas how to persuade wasps to leave?

    If you google "fake wasp nest deterrent" you will see products that, allegedly, deter wasps who think that a rival nest is present.
    You could order one on line,  or perhaps you could get creative with some tissue paper, cardboard and glue?

    Do you have a sock drawer you could invite them into instead?

    Give them time, they will eventually abandon looking for the nest.

    :D

    Unlike the brain, the stomach warns you when it's empty.

    I might do the same if I came home and my house was missing. Time, maybe a day or so.

    There are wasp traps that can be purchased that use sticky glue
