When removing wasps, a few things need to be considered such as clothing and time. Wasps can give a very unpleasant sting and to some people it can be very dangerous as they maybe allergic. They can also sting multiple times as well as there sting leaving a pheromone behind that attracts other wasps to sting to. With this in mind, clothing becomes very important. Covering all your skin or as much as you can will help reduce the chances of being stung, also layers will help prevent a wasps sting from reaching your skin through the clothing.
Time is also very important as wasps are out hunting during the day. Wasps retreat to there nest at sun down and will stay there till the sun rises the following day. So the best time to attack the nest will be once all the wasps are inside.
Once the nest and the wasps have been killed, removing the nest should be very easy.
