I have seen fake wasp nests sold as a deterrent against wasps and similar insects. Do they really work? Is there some scientific evidence for it?

I know of someone who researches on wasps and he said that if you move the nest then the wasps get fooled and remain in the new location. I don't know about the fake wasp nests though. –  WYSIWYG Jan 8 at 9:18
