Almost all wasps are territorial and if you make a "fake" paper nest and hang it near your hops (like right up there with the hops or on the supports) they will choose other areas to inhabit.
Just blow up a big balloon, paper mache around it and paint it that gray color and hang up for the season (I would think you might have to put some varnish or something on it or it might melt in the rain tho?) they also sell little blow up ones in some stores.. they work.
