  • Suffocation with hot soapy water– Prepare a mixture of soap and hot water. Pour it in the wasp nests. This will suffocate them and force the wasps to leave their nest.
  • Essential oils– Essential oils such as lemon grass essence, peppermint oil etc. have a very strong aroma. Mix them and dilute them. Spray it directly in the wasp nest. The mixture is so strong that it might even kill the wasps.
  • Red hot pepper– Dilute some red pepper power and spray it directly into the wasp’s nest.
  • Sugar solution trap– Mix apple cider vinegar with ample amount of sugar. Take two plastic bottle and join them with a glue. Pour in this mixture. Wasps get attracted to sugar. The plastic bottles filled with sugar and vinegar solution will act as a trap and would not be able to escape.
