    They're wasps I'm pretty sure

    Migrant paper wasps, likely looking for a safe nesting place.

    Get them to eat bits of ripe fruit on a saucer and escort them outside.

    These are not too aggressive at all, I do that by hand and never stung:

    They look like paper wasps to me.  They're looking for a place to overwinter.  They have a pretty nasty sting, so don't accidentally sit on one which is what I did.

      Only the queens overwinter, workers die off with onset of winter.

    Definitely wasps of some kind, there's probably a hive somewhere nearby
