Paper wasp control, handled by professionals, is the only recommended way to get rid of paper wasps.
Like bees, paper wasps are beneficial to the environment as they help pollinate plants and feed on other insects – but that doesn’t mean they’re safe around people. Being stung by one of these wasps can be very painful, and the sting site can become infected easily, resulting in further medical problems. The danger increases exponentially if you are allergic to the sting. This is why many pest control experts place paper wasps among the list of North America’s Most Dangerous Pests.
However, the key thing to remember when considering paper wasp control is that these insects generally won’t bother you unless you bother them. Unfortunately, if they’ve built a nest around your home, then your presence alone could cause the wasps to aggressively defend the nest.
So, what can you do to remove these little buggers if they’re invading your life? Here are some quick dos and don’ts.
Dos & Don’ts For Paper Wasp Control
DO call a paper wasp control professional
Before you do something you’ll regret, contact the professionals. Pest control companies that specialize in the removal of paper wasps can quickly and effectively get rid of the wasps and the nests.
In many cases, the wasps can be removed without killing them, using special tools like bee boxes. But this isn’t a job for amateurs. Professional wasp control experts also wear special clothing that prevents them from being stung. That means they can get up-close and personal with the wasps to solve the problem and not risk anyone getting hurt.
DON’T get out the garden hose
The idea is simple in theory. You’re a homeowner whose patio has been overtaken by wasps. You know where the nest is. You have a garden hose. Why not spray it with gallons of water, thus destroying the nest and watering the wasps to death?
Unfortunately, the idea is an awful one. The water won’t necessarily destroy the nest, and even so, it certainly won’t kill all the wasps who are defending it. Moments after pulling the trigger, you’ll likely be stung multiple times, and you’ll be stuck with the same wasp problem.
DON’T throw objects at the nest
See the previous DON’T for reasons not to attempt this ill-intentioned idea. Rocks, sporting equipment, branches – it doesn’t matter what object you use, it will only cause a disaster.
DO stay away from the nest until professionals arrive
The single best thing you can do, after calling a wasp removal company, is to stay away from the nest and instruct others to do the same. If wasps are hovering around your patio or backyard, simply avoid that space until the professionals have removed them.

1. Do you have experience removing bees from a wall?
Removing honeybees from a wall requires carpentry experience. A novice beekeeper can cause more damage than good if they are not experts in carpentry.
2. What is the process of removing bees from a wall?
An experienced beekeeper will identify the location of the bees with an infrared camera, use a smoker to calm the bees, use a bee vacuum and other professional tools to remove the honeybees safely, extract the hive, clean the affected area, apply pesticide to deter honeybees from returning to the empty hive, fill the open area with insulation and replace the wall with the original material whenever possible.
3. Do you have pictures of honeybee removals from walls?
Trustworthy honeybee removal companies will have plenty of pictures. Choose a company that has more than just a few examples.
4.How long have you been a beekeeper?
Because there are many species of bees, a beekeeper must have extensive knowledge of the different techniques to safely and effectively remove the bees.
5. How long have you been in business?
Make sure they have a valid business license and have many years of experience in the bee removal field.
6. Do you have references?
A reputable bee removal company will have good ratings online on platforms such as Google. Be wary of businesses that have too few good reviews. Itâ€™s not unusual for novice companies to ask friends and family to create favorable reviews.
7. Do you guarantee your work?
Read the warranty or guarantee agreement carefully. A good bee removal company will warranty a removal requiring a repair for at least a year.
8. Do you have insurance?
Some companies operate with little or no insurance. Companies should have both liability and workmanâ€™s compensation insurance. This is a good precaution against accidents caused by bee smokers causing fires or beekeepers falling from roofs or trees.
