Unfortunately there are no plants that will repell insects reliably. Wasps may be attracted to flowering plants or to food such as soft drinks or fruit. Avoiding these attractants would be the best you could do in terms of trying not to encourage them. If there is a wasp nest on your patio, you might want to contact a professional pest control company for assistance especially if you have wasp allergies.
