If you just can’t bear it, if you are allergic to wasp stings, if the wasps are getting inside your house, or are being a real nuisance, our reluctant but firm advice is to remove the wasps’ nest as a problem by having it professionally treated. We advise you not to try to get rid of a wasps nest on your own as this can be very dangerous, there are typically thousands of inhabitants of the average wasp nest.
Most good pest controllers will treat the nest by killing its inhabitants, but will leave the structure of the wasp nest in place, as this will deter other wasps from nesting there (a Waspinator will do exactly the same job if this hasn’t happened).
If you want to leave the wasps’ nest alone but not be bothered by the wasps, place a Waspinator where you want to be wasp free away from the nest and they will go somewhere else, they are used to travelling quite long distances to forage.
If a wasps’ nest is very close to the area you wish to use for human activity, the wasps from this nest may regard that area as their own territory and may get close enough to the Waspinator to use their sense of smell to realise that it isn’t real. In this instance, if the Waspinator is not working effectively, you may need to resort to dealing with the wasp nest. After this has been done, the Waspinator will protect you from wasps from another colony, and will give you a Wasp Free Zone to enjoy.
