I have a holly bush outside of my front door and there are several wasp nests within the bush. Is there any solution I can use that would not be harmful to the bush and still rid it of the pesky wasps?

There's not a lot you can do that doesn't pose a risk to whomever is trying to actually remove the nest. It's better to wait until they're least active, usually at night or during cooler temps. This article may offer some suggestions to help you; otherwise, you may want to seek a professional: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/kill-wasps.htm
