Why do wasps always build nests on my house? They might also build around your home! When wasps build nests around you, it’s because they’ve found an ideal spot. It’ll be shady but warm, at least partially covered, and difficult for predators to access. You can keep wasps from building near you by cutting off as many good building sites as possible.
