How To Relocate A Wasp Nest

If you live in the country you probably have had pest control companies and other non-dealing people wanting to “remove” or “kill” your wasp nests for you. These same people try to sell you wasp poison that does not work — and can make the wasps more angry. They will even get down on their hands and knees and look under your eaves for a nonexistent nest.  

Let me tell you how to safely have the wasps relocate without killing them — at least not until they have moved away from you and your home. How to relocate a wasp nest without killing them- If you find a wasp nest in your attic or somewhere else in your house, one of the most common reactions is to want it out of there as fast as possible.

You have probably seen the movies where the people get stung countless times when trying to destroy the nest, so we are justified in wanting to just throw it out. But is that really the best method? So you’re strolling down your driveway and you suddenly see a wasp nest. You wonder ‘How do I get rid of a wasp nest?’ But the only thing you know is that if you knock it down, it’ll make a huge mess. Luckily we have solutions for everything, including moving wasp nests without getting stung!

If you’re reading this, then you’ve probably already encountered a wasp nest that makes you feel like your home isn’t so nice. We’re here to tell you that it is! But before we get into the DIY details of getting rid of those pests, let’s take a moment to truly understand what they are and why they act the way they do. That way, if any of the techniques in this guide don’t work for you, or if some other unexpected challenge pops up during the course of your extermination mission, no problem! You’ll have a better idea of what’s going on.

Why would I want to relocate a wasp nest?

There are many reasons why you may want to relocate a wasp nest. You may be concerned about being stung, or the nest could be in a place where it would be harmed by machinery or small children. You might also want to relocate the nest if it is near your home and you are worried that pets or large animals could destroy it. It’s even possible that there are so many wasps in your area that you feel intimidated by their presence! Whatever your reason, go ahead and take action now!

How do I find a wasp nest?

In order to relocate a wasp nest, you’ll need to know where it is. This can be tricky, but there are some ways to make it easier. The best way to find a wasp nest is during the spring when their activity increases and they begin building their nests. Look for areas that have large numbers of trees or flowers near them. Wasps like these areas because they provide both food (nectar) and shelter (trees).

How do I relocate the wasps?

  • Wear protective clothing. If you’re going to pick up a wasp nest, get yourself all suited up — that means jeans and long sleeves, shoes or boots with rubber soles (no flip flops), gloves and eye protection. Don’t forget the hat! You need the hat because if you don’t wear it, then you might get stung in the head by accident.
  • Take precautions against getting stung. Although it’s possible to relocate a wasp nest without being stung (see below), we recommend taking some precautions to avoid being stung; this includes wearing protective clothing and using appropriate tools when handling the nest.

If you just need to move a wasp nest, this is a good way to do it humanely.

  • Do not spray the nest with insecticide. The wasps will likely abandon their nest before they succumb to death. This can be problematic because then you’ll be dealing with a bunch of angry, hungry wasps that are trying to find new places to go and live.
  • Do not burn the nest! This may seem like an obvious one, but I’ve seen people do it before (and been tempted myself). It’s best if you just leave the nest alone if at all possible.
  • Do not spray water or use a hose on the wasp’s nest either! Although this can work sometimes, it often does more harm than good because some of those little creatures will get caught in between the cracks and crevices inside their home—which means within hours there will be a swarm of dead bodies making things worse for everyone involved (including yourself!). Just avoid doing this altogether!
