You can use the especially designed protective gears that are used by honeybee caretakers. However, if you do not have it, then you can also wear thick clothes or full sleeves denim shirt and pant. Cover your hands with gloves and wear a facemask as well. Do not forget to protect your eyes with sunglasses, as they are the most sensitive part of your body.

It is better to operate against wasps in the evening, or early morning when all of them will be available in their nest, being least active.

Knock down the wasp nest
Once you kill all the wasps, again put your protective clothes on and knock down the nest with the help of a broom handle or a long stick.
Dispose the wasp nest
