How can I get rid of ground wasps?


Answer by  EasyC (20)

This may not be politically correct these days with the all the environmentalists but I've used gasoline on ground wasp nests and it works every time. You don't need to light it, just soak the nest. One word of caution, it will also kill any grass that gets soaked.

After the wasps have returned to the ground, dump gasoline into the nest. This will seep through the cavities into the ground. Light a piece of paper, drop it onto the gasoline that has remained on the outside, and stand back. This will take care of most of the wasps that have returned to the nest.

You have to call an exterminator. I tried for years to get rid of mine then I called pest control. They came out and the wasps haven't come back.

This suggestion for eliminating ground wasps works, but only in the right circumstances. If feasible, wait until dark when all the wasps are back in the nest, pour a small amount of gasoline into the hole and light it. You can also try to force smoke down into that hole.

i wait till night because all of them come at night and buy wasp killer and then stand above the hole and spray a good spray.

First you must find the nests. Then at 11pm (or later) go and pour two to three cups of ammonia into each of the holes. The next night go out and repeat the process on any new nests.

You should watch them from a distance until you find their nest. Then, pour gasoline over their nest and light it on fire.

During the day, identify where the nests are located. Then, tate in the evening, after 11 PM when they are sleeping/nesting, pour several cups of ammonia into the nest/hole in the ground. If they are not all eradicated you may find new nests so continue checking your yard.

Many times beekeepers will come get them for you and relocate them. They usually live in holes that you can fill with dirt or water in the day.

Go to your nearest store with a gardening section and find an insecticide that specifically labels wasp.
