Threat to You 

Care must be taken when an active nest is found as they will sting you if they feel the need to protect the nest. The painful sting from a wasp can bring on a serious allergic reaction that can cause death in some people.

The nest looks so simple why shouldn’t I do it myself?

It is highly recommended that the pest professionals from Power Pest Control eliminate your wasp nest safely so that you or your family does not get hurt!
