Killing Wasps
Killing wasps and keeping them under control is very important even for people who do not have allergies. A wasp sting contains a pheromone that attracts more wasps to sting the same area making them a very big problem.
If there is a nest of wasps near to your home and your family, killing them is very important as they can easily ruin your day! The sooner they are killed, the better. Killing a single wasp can be difficult on its own when its in your home flying about. While trying to be careful not to get stung, you can either try and let it out of a window or, grab a newspaper or shoe or anything about that you can kill it with. Once dead, even when picking a wasp up you must be very careful. As my granddad used the corner of a piece of newspaper to pick one up and even though it was dead, its stinger went through the paper and into his thumb! He was not best pleased.

If a wasps nest is your concern then killing products may be needed along with knowledge on the best time to kill them. As for the time, wasps retreat to their nest at night. With this in mind, the best time to kill them will be at dusk or before the sun comes up in the morning. Another very important thing to considered is your own safety, by making sure all of your skin is covered by some form of clothing to prevent being stung. Layers are also important to help prevent the sting reaching your skin. The cheapest way to kill them is to light a fire under the nest if it is possible. The smoke from the fire will suffocate the wasps inside the nest and if it is done at the correct time, most of them will be killed. Some may fly away and escape but with the rest inside the nest dead, as long as the nest is destroyed, they will not return.
If it is not possible to light a fire under the nest then wasp killing products will be needed. Their are foams available that can be sprayed at a safe distance and again, this should be done at the rite time for the best results. Some sites believe it is a good idea to nock the nest down while spraying, I believe it is best to leave the nest until the majority of wasps are dead and to then destroy the nest. This way you are even less likely to be stung.
