You should not remove a wasp nest yourself. Unless you have training and the right equipment, hire an exterminator.

  • Treating stinging insect nests requires protective clothing and application equipment. Purchasing these tools costs more than hiring a wasp exterminator.
  • Store-bought pesticides can agitate the nests. If these nests are in the wall, you can drive stinging insects into your home.
  • You are making yourself vulnerable to bee stings if you treat a nest yourself. You could be allergic or develop an allergy to bee stings. This can be life threatening.
