5. When I found the original idea (can't find that link now, darn it) it did mention that

the "creature" wouldn't be harmed. I suppose if you've adapted to eat honey, you've also adapted to be immune, or at least indifferent, to stinging.

Another trick I recently heard it putting a clear cover, like a cake cover or a jar over the opening at night. In the morning, the wasps try to get out but don't dig a new opening b/c the clear cover gives them "hope" that they can fly out eventually. Has to be weighted down and relatively well sealed to the edges so they don't find a way out. My yard is too uneven for that, but it might work for a hole in a wooden terrace.
