Identifying Wasps

The first step in getting rid of wasps is properly identifying them. There are many different types of wasps, including yellow jackets and bald-faced hornets.

DIY Wasp Control Options

If you want to handle a wasp infestation yourself, there are some DIY methods that can help control the population. For example, using a vacuum cleaner with an extension hose can be effective for removing nests from hard-to-reach places like attics or high ceilings. You can also try using soapy water or insecticides to kill individual wasps or entire colonies. Be sure to wear protective clothing when spraying insecticides and use caution when handling nests as they may contain venomous insects!
