Yes, you will temporarily get rid of your wasp at the moment but more will appear. There are two main insecticides exterminators rely on, the wasp spray and the dust insecticide.
Wasp nest removal is pretty simple. First, track down the main area where there seems to be a lot of wasp traffic. Usually, you will be able to find the nest nearby. When you discover the nest, come back to the discovered location late in the evening. Before applying any wasp killer pesticides, be sure to dress yourself appropriately. It is recommended to wear thick clothing (even multiple layers) and a pair of gloves. Spray directly into the nest entrance (opening). Wasp sprays are very effective and most sprays will kill on contact. When applying dust insecticides, using a duster is recommended. Directly insert the duster into the entrance hole of the nest and apply. The number of pumps should be according to size of the nest. For a mid size nest, it is ideal to pump 2-3 times. If the nest is still active the next day, continue the treatment until it is evident that the nest is eradicated.
