Actually, if the paint color is more the color of water on the porch ceiling, then wasps won't build nests on it. It truly does work. We once had a terrible problem with multiple wasps nests on our porch ceiling for years and it was becoming increasingly worse. We tried spray, taking the nests down when the wasp was gone during the day and anything else we heard or read. Nothing helped for more than a day or two. About 5 years ago I read about this solution in a gardening book. We painted the porch ceiling a light aqua blue. We were skeptical but desperate, then pleasantly surprised that it really worked! And we have only very rarely had any wasp nests there since!
