Paper Wasp Nest Removal

Stay safe from stinging insects this season


Wasp's nest

Paper wasps are a stinging insect known for their painful, repetitious stings. They often build their nests this time of year, posing a risk to nearby humans, especially humans who are allergic to their stings. It might be tempting to remove a paper wasp nest on your own, but this is a risky move. For your own safety, it is advised that you seek the assistance of a pest professional. However, if you’re determined to remove the nest on your own, there are a number of precautions to take. Read on to learn a few helpful safety tips for paper wasp nest removal.

Paper Wasp Nest

  • Plan your timing. Paper wasps return to their nests at night. They’re most inactive during this time period and less likely to sting. Therefore, this is the safest time to attempt to remove their nest.
  • Dress for the job. In case you are stung in the removal process, it’s important to protect yourself. Wear long pants, long sleeves, high socks, boots, protective gloves, and a face mask if possible.
  • Come prepared. Carry a wasp poison spray with you when you approach the nest in case you’re faced with a swarm of wasps.
  • Slip a cloth bag or a garbage bag over the nest and tie it tightly. Either place the cloth bag in a container of water, fully submerged, or a garbage bag in a tightly sealed container. Leave it for a few days to ensure all the insects have been killed.
