If you’re like most people, you don’t want to see a wasp nest on the exterior of your home. The safest way to get rid of a wasp nest is to call a professional who is trained to do so. If you are insistent on doing it yourself, here is how to move forward.
Grab a wide putty knife, a trash bag, and wasp spray. Plan an exit strategy, just in case you need a quick getaway. Wasps are more docile at night, so this is the best time to remove the nest yourself.
Spray the nest to make the wasps die or sick, place the bag over the nest as you scrape it off the building, then seal the bag. Discard the trash bag in a sealed trash can away from your home.
