Question Wasp nest

My parents have a wasp nest in their bush next to front of their door and wondering how to get rid of it. My mom suggested to cut the branch down, but then you have to worry about them flying out. I suggested just using wasp spray...any other suggetions?

I wouldn't cut the branch. The sprays shoot from a long distance away so they should be safe to spray and run, but I've always been too chicken to use them!

I have pest control every 2 mo & he will knock down any nests he sees so I don't usually have to do anything.

Wait until night fall, no matter what you do. They all go back to the hive at night, so you will get them all.

How big is the hive?
If it is really big I'd call a professional. If it's small enough, I'd cut it, spray it and then bag it so they can't get out if they lived through the spray.

If it is small I would knock it down and run in the house! but make sure you do it when you don't have to be anywhere right after because you might get stuck in the house for a few hours after wards! I have knocked down some hives and they all will find a new home afterward so once they are gone you can go take the hive and get rid of it! If it is real big and the wasps seem aggressive already I would get a professional to do it!

It wasnt a wasp nest after all...it was like a black bees or something and it was huge! My dad called the exterminator and it was gonna cost them $150! Their neighbor came out about 9 and took care of it instead.
