Wireshark is a passive network troubleshooting tool and thus it will not send any data into the network (except maybe DNS requests, if that feature is enabled). Thus, you cannot drop/reject any Wifi/Wlan packets with Wireshark.

Can scapy tool with python can help to solve this problem?

maybe, but that is a question you better ask in a scapy related forum.
