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 under the following conditions:
•    if the nest is small, on your property and easy to access.
•    if you discovered the nest in early spring and the nest is still small (size of a golf or tennis ball).
•    if there is minimal wasp activity around the nest.
•    if you are NOT allergic to wasp stings.
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.

FACT: Nests cannot be removed straight away after professional treatments, as it can take several days for foraging wasps to come home to the nest. You need to wait until all the wasps have had time to return. As they do, they will also become contaminated and this ensures that the whole colony is dealt with in one go.

Wasp Stings
A sting by a social or common wasp (also known as a yellow jacket) is a painful experience. It can be very upsetting and frightening for young children.
Wasp stings may even be life threatening to people allergic to the poison in stings. This allergic reaction is known as anaphylaxis.
People who have been stung several times previously and have become sensitised are more likely to suffer this systemic reaction.
The good news is that this type of allergic reaction is rare and it is even rarer for it to be fatal.
Preventing Wasp Stings
A wasp sting is a form of defence. If wasps feel threatened or if their nest is disturbed it makes them very aggressive and provokes them to sting.
In spring wasps hunt aphids, greenfly and other insects to feed grubs in the nest. At this time wasps will only become aggressive if they think their nest or their young are under threat.
Tips to Avoid Stings
In late summer/autumn wasps have no young to feed so get no sugary secretion. This is when they seek fermenting fruit and sweet things and become more of a pest at picnics, barbecues and outdoor meals in general.
Luckily there are some easy, practical things you can do yourself to try and avoid being stung.
Do not panic - If you find there are wasps nearby keep calm and move slowly away.
Do not scream, flap your arms or swat them - This will just agitate them and make them more aggressive.
Avoid strong, sweet smells - Do not use highly perfumed fragrances, shampoos, hair sprays.
Avoid bright colours - Do not wear bright, bold floral patterns on clothes and bags, which could attract wasps
Avoid orchards - Or any soft fruit plants and even uncovered bins, where wasps gather seeking food.
Avoid open drinks - If drink cans or bottles are left unattended, it may encourage wasps to crawl inside.
Cover food and drink - Always keep food and drink covered when eating outdoors to deter wasps.
Stay clean - Ensure children’s hands/faces are cleaned after eating sweet foods/drinks.
Treatments for Wasp Stings
It is difficult to know how you might react to a wasp sting, if you have never been stung before.
There are some practical things you can do to help with any pain you might feel
•    Use a cold compress such as an ice-pack or cold flannel.
•    Take painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to soothe any pain.
•    Take antihistamine tablets to reduce any small localised swelling around the sting.
If you are in any doubt about a wasp sting please consult a doctor or medical professional.
The allergic reaction anaphylaxis can occur when someone becomes sensitised to the poison in the sting. It is a rare reaction but can be fatal.
If someone has the following symptoms after being stung, immediately call for an ambulance:
•    difficulty breathing
•    wheezing
•    vomiting
•    nausea or diarrhoea
•    feeling faint or dizzy
•    swollen face or mouth
•    problems swallowing
