Removing a wasp nest can be very dangerous. Wasps inside the nest will feel threatened and often become aggressive. This could cause them to sting you and others as they defend their nest and young.
To get rid of wasps you do 'not' need to remove the nest, but you do need to treat it and the nesting wasps.
To reduce the risk of stings to you and your family, arrange for a professional wasp nest treatment. This effective solution will eliminate the wasps and keep you safe from the threat of stings.
The location of a nest on your property, or nearby, is usually the reason why you have a wasp problem.
If you can get rid of the nest early on in the spring, you can really help to avoid a serious problem in the height of summer.
You should only attempt to remove a small wasp nest under the following conditions:
If the nest is within a wall cavity or similar enclosed space it may not be possible to remove it at all.
The good news is that the same nest is never reused by a new queen the following year.
A new nest may be built in the same location though, if it continues to offer shelter, protection and easy access to the outside.

A mature wasp nest only found in late summer will almost certainly require professional treatment due to the high risk of wasp stings. By this stage, a nest may contain thousands of individual wasps.
If you still wish to remove the nest yourself, it would be better to wait till late autumn before attempting this and ensure you wear protective clothing as the treatment may still be active within the nest.
