A wasp’s nest can be quite the threat to your space, and considering the fact that wasps multiply at a rapid rate, it is even more important to rid your property of the nest before any serious damage is done.
While a queen wasp starts off with her colony with only a few worker bees at the beginning of summer, towards the end of the season, a single wasp nest could hold up to 50,000 wasps! Now that’s quite a number indeed, and we can only imagine what could go wrong if this truckload of wasps were rubbed the wrong way.
Well, to eliminate the chances of any untoward incident, getting rid of a wasp’s nest is therefore the best way to go about things.
Here are a couple of ways to do it right.
The first thing you need to do is check if you are allergic to wasp stings. This may sound frivolous, especially if you intend to avoid any stings altogether. But making sure never hurt!
Pesticides that help you annihilate wasps and therefore ridding the nest of any dangerous inhabitants are freely available, and if the nest in question is a relatively smaller one, this method works like a breeze without any chances of things going wrong.
Getting to this task in the night is recommended.
Another method is to double up this pesticide move with a vacuum cleaner. Cotton dipped in acetone placed inside the vacuum cleaner will also help in killing any wasps that are sucked in through the vacuum hose.
Of course, the best solution is to hire the services of an exterminator so that you have professionals take care of the nest. Frankly, this is always a better option, unless you’re really sure of what you’re doing!
