Can I Remove A Wasp Nest Myself?

As the days warm up and the nights get longer, to most people this signifies spring is here and summer is not too far away. However, a bit like the grinch at Christmas, there is one animal that loves to ruin our lovely sunny days.. Yes you guessed it, Wasps!

No one likes having a wasp nest in or around their home and many home and business owners often try to remove or destroy the wasp nest themselves. Occasionally they are successful, however the vast majority of the time all they end up doing is annoying thousands of wasps and the nest remains active. Whilst having an active wasp nest inside your home or place of work can be dangerous, trying to remove it yourselves poses an even greater risk.

As you well know, wasps have a stinger (or sting) which they are not afraid to use. Unlike bees, wasps can sting multiple times and do not die. The stinger is an incredibly sharp organ found at the back of a wasp which is capable of piercing human skin and injecting a small amount of venom which is what caused the pain.

Unlike many other insects, wasps are incredibly protective and violent. Whilst one wasp sting is more of an annoyance to most people, too many stings or if you have an allergic reaction can be very dangerous. It is always best to air on the side of caution and make sure you take proper precautions when removing a wasp nest.

It is strongly recommended that you do not attempt to destroy or remove a wasp nest without and instead seek a professional service.

Three Reasons You Need a Professional Wasp Nest Removal Company

The Right Equipment

The only way to safely remove a wasps’ nest is to have the correct Personal Protective Equipment or PPE kits. The protective suits that professionals use are very similar to those used by bee keepers and protect all parts of the body and face from wasp attacks and stings.
