Various ways to get rid of wasps:

  1. Soap solution spray: To remove the wasp nest one can use soap-based sprays. But one should always use these sprays at night time as the wasp is not much active during dark and nights. So they don’t attack at night time. One can use the following soap-based solution for wasp nest removal.
  • Using dishwashing soap and water: Instead of chemical pesticides, one can easily use the soap and water as a natural pesticide to remove the wasps. Under this method, simply take 5-8 tablespoons dishwashing detergent and half a cup of water. Then properly mix them and put them into a spray bottle. Spray this solution in the night directly on the wasp nest and then quickly vacant that area or hide somewhere. One needs to repeat this process 1-2 times more so that wasp can directly come into contact with water and soap. While using these methods one should properly cover them to save them from a wasp sting.
  • Using soap, vinegar, and water: Vinegar is also a good home-based ingredient that can be used to get rid of wasps. Under this method, take 4-5 tablespoon liquid soap, 6-7 tablespoon vinegar, and half cup water. Mix all these ingredients and put them into a spray bottle. If the wasp nest is near the doors or ground area then you don’t need a spray bottle. Just simply pour this solution directly on the nests and wasp to kill them. But if the wasp nest is in the roof or at the higher area where one can’t directly reach then spraying this solution through the spray bottle is the best way to kill the wasps.
  1. Soda bottle trap: Another way to remove the wasp is using a soda bottle trap to cough the wasp. Wasp is attracted to sweet food so we can use the sweets as a trap to get rid of these wasps.  So take a soda bottle and put some liquid sweet and sweet soda in the bottle. Now, place this soda bottle near the wasp nest. And let it there for few hours. Wasps will get attracted to this liquid sweet and will fall inside the bottle. This method is effective but it is less preferred by people as sometimes it can kill the wasp. So one should carefully use this soda bottle trap. One should try to use that type of sweet liquid that has a very strong smell and a small amount of it can be used to attract the wasp. By doing so the wasps will not die inside the bottle they can be easily caught and can be left somewhere else for their survival.
  2. Smoke them out: One of the most effective and preventive ways to remove the wasps and wasp nest without killing the wasps is using the smoke. The wasps consider the smoke as a natural danger signal like a forest fire and they immediately left the place. This method involves the following steps:
  3. Light a fire near the wasp nest
  4. One can use cardboard, paper, small woods, bushes, etc. to light up the fire.
  5. Let the fire burn for at least 1-3 hours.
  6. These methods are only suitable for aerial wasps nest-like, nest hanging higher on the trees, etc. and are not suitable for indoor nests like near the door, etc.
