Do it Yourself Wasp Nest Removal Plan

  • Visit your local doctor & make sure that you are not allergic in any way to wasp or hornet venom.
  • Identify exactly what species of wasps they are to find out if the wasps may be safely removed.
  • Purchase a can of wasp killer and then read the directions on the label. Follow these directions to the letter.
  • Find out the location of the nest and the flight path of the wasps. If the nest is above or near a doorway, ensure that you will have an escape point and another method of entry into your home during the treatment period.
  • Wait until night time as the wasps or hornets will not be active, they will be inside or on top of the nest.
  • Wear appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) such as correct respirator for sprays/fumes, impervious gloves, hat, and goggles for eye protection.
  • Clear the area where you will be spraying of all risks: people, pets, toys, clothes on line, vehicles, vegetable patches, foodstuffs, etc.
  • Position yourself where you are close to the nest, but not directly under it.
  • ALWAYS have more than one escape routes planned to escape any annoyed wasps.
  • Spray according to directions on the label. Don’t run from the area but re-treat quickly
  • Wait overnight and the next couple of days to make sure that it has been effective.
  • Wear your PPE again and knock down the nest if it isn’t active anymore and squash the nest with your gloves on to destroy the larvae.
  • Dispose of the wasp or hornet’s nest. Success is yours!
