Stand On Something Sturdy

If the wasps nest is up high, never stand on a ladder or something that is not sturdy. If the wasps think they are under attack, they will attack you. The last thing you want to do, is be attacked by a hundred wasps. This could cause you to lose your balance and take a fall. If you are going to use a ladder. Make sure to have someone hold the bottom of the ladder for you. The thought of falling to the ground is bad enough. let alone being then stung by a swarm of angry wasps.
