You can use bondo to fill the holes. Wasps can chew the foam.

I think filling holes with foam can be a very bad step.Foam tend to disintegrate very early.So you should search for a better option.

foam disintegrates when exposed to sunlight but it still takes years. The bondo will shield it from the light/
