Don't Kill Wasps Or Bees If You Don't Have To
First, before killing wasps and bees you should determine if you can live with them. If wasps are not bothering you, you should leave them alone since they kill all kinds of harmful pests in your garden. I the case of bees you should make every attempt to have a beekeeper come and take them away before exterminating them. There is a shortage of honeybees and they are vital for pollination.
You Don't Have To Use Toxic Chemicals To Kill Wasps
You don't have to use dangerous wasp and hornet killers to get rid of these pests. Wasps and hornets usually do us no harm and in fact kill many of the bugs that damage our gardens. Having a wasp nest near a place where people walk can be a problem since wasps are usually protective of their nest within about 7 feet and more active on hot days.
One solution that works quite well and costs very little is to mix about 6 tablespoons of dish soap into a plastic mop bucket about a quarter full. Dawn and Joy soap both work very well for killing wasps and bees.
Put on long pants and a long sleeve shirt and coat, hat and glasses and approach the nest from a safe distance. Slosh the water directly up onto the nest and make a quick exit.
Don't try this if you cannot get away quickly or get a direct shot at the nest.
Also, don't try this on a huge colony since you won't be able to hit all the wasps or hornets and you will be attacked by the rest.
You can safely and naturally kill wasps and hornets with eco friendly methods like this and save money as well. The soapy water residue washed off easily and doesn't damage exterior house paint like some wasp sprays.
Don't try this if you are allergic to wasps, bees or hornets. Hire an exterminator to come and take care of the wasp or bee problem if you are allergic or feel that you cannot do the job without getting stung.
