DIY VS Professional Wasp Nest Removal
There are lots of ways that you might realize that there are wasps around your house. One of them happens to be if you notice that there is a nest near your house. The wasp nest is often found around the eaves of the house. The eaves are a great spot for them to build the nest and stay away from any potential dangers. Some of the nests are hexagonal and can be quite large. Others are smaller and look like a papermache nest was placed near your house. The problem is that some people think they can just remove the nest. They might hit it down with a broom, light it on fire or spray it with the hose. These are all bad decisions because the wasps that are living in it will start to become agitated. When they do they will start to sting anyone and everyone in the area including your pet. You want to call out a professional to come and safely remove the nest.
If you are in a situation that wasps are around you want to try and avoid being stung. You can do that by staying calm and not moving too fast through the area. You want to move away and find a new path. If they do start to come at you to sting you want to cover your head and start to move out of the area without swinging your arms. This will make them madder and they will keep stinging. Some people think water is a safe place but the wasps will wait you out.
