If you’ve ever been stung by a wasp, you know how bad it hurts, and if you haven’t, you probably don’t want to experience the pain. This is all the more reason to want them off your property especially if you have children running around. It is best to call in pest control experts to remove them and generally practice safe wasp nest removal because they get aggressive and attack in numbers when provoked.
Three tips to help you if you decide to do it yourself include having a clear escape route so that in case things get out of hand, you have a safe means with no obstacles to escape the area.
The second tip is to be totally covered — from long-sleeve shirts stuffed into gloves and pants stuffed into boots to eye protection and overall heavy clothing.
The third tip is to try treating the wasp nest with a pest control product before attempting the removal to reduce the numbers and activity of the wasps.
A bonus tip is to do the wasp nest removal early in the morning or late in the evening because at these times, the wasps are not at their peak activity levels. Follow all these tips to stay safe while performing the wasp nest removal.
