    If it’s close to the ground just walk up to it with two cans of spray and hose it down. With both at once.

    Draco, yer like the Germans at Normandy... Damn! How did so many get through alive?

    A shotgun will destroy the nest, but between every whizzing pellet will be two dozen hornets that survive, and start lookin'.

    Years ago I wanted to get some pics of a big hornet nest. Put a long macro lens on the Nikon, put it on a tripod and setup about 3’ away. They didn’t bother me for 2 or 3 min, bit then they decided that was enough. Funny thing is that I ran and left the camera, which they attacked in force for at least an hour. The thing was covered in hornet spit, juice, whatever.

    Video of the transaction so there is hysterical documentation.

    You know, a twist on the CFF "pics or it didn't happen" mantra.

    I was thinking of the 2 handed wasp spray attack, but upon further planning the tree leaves are blocking the clear path to get the main opening on the hive, and there are many other means of egress for the devils... how about I give you each a pair of 12 inch sticks to beat it with while I film from inside the house... I hear that if you light yourself on fire they wont sting you....

    Just throw some diesel on it after dark one night. No need to light it. The nest will dissolve overnight and you’ll find a pile of dead hornets the next morning.

    Do you need a copy of my Apiarist license and are you requiring a BoS on this?

    Hornet spray at night. After dark, they all return to the nest, and are less active. Soak it down good, and get away from it. Should be dead by morning.

    For yellow jackets and other ground wasps, just pour 1-2 cups of gasoline down their hole, and cover it with a cinderblock for a day. The gas fumes will get them all.

    I had a nest of yellowjackets in the ground I couldn't get rid of with gas, eventually bought some of the stuff made to kill ground nesting bees. It foams up and fills up all of the hollow spaces.
    We had a hornets nest at work, our pest control guy came by and pumped the nest full of that dust that calms them down and then he soaked it down with the bee spray.

    Just go up to it, and tie a big trash bag around it.
    Quickly. ;)
    And don't hit it with a water hose with a big black dog walking around.
    Ask me how I know, I felt so bad for Buddy. They went to his ass like a M134 minigun .
