He may have killed the ones in the nest, but I bet there are some ready to hatch that the spray didnt get. Best thing to do is bag them and spray another 1/2 can in the bag, seal it up and let it set for a couple weeks. Maybe then I might trust it.

I for one do not think it is creepy.  It is scary. 

 

There isn't much I am afraid of.  I do some stupid risky things.  But bees, hornets, and wasps, are my natural enemies. 

 

The only thing I use to kill them is a can of ether or 2+2 gum cutter.  Why you ask?  That stuff makes them roll over instantly.  I had one land on my arm while I was killing a nest on an engine.  I spun that can of ether around and zapped that sucker instantly.  He curled up before he had time to sting.  Thank goodness. 

 

What's more, in case the worst happens and the hornets over produce the spraying capabilities, pull out a match and you all go to wherever you are bound.

I cut a hornet nest out of my barn on a cold January day and covered it with straw outside....one match and it soon became ash.

In germany hornets are protected. This summer I only saw some of them and they were realy peaceful - so why I should kill this animal. They belong longer to mother earth then the speaking apes...

Around these parts they are very very aggressive and will not hesitate to sting the living snot out of you.1 Sting and the whole hive will be on you within a mater of seconds.

 

I had to deal with the pesky critters daily down at the farm.After we got rid of our livestock,for the most part,We started a fairly big Christmas tree farm and they LOVE to build Huge nests in pine trees.And those darn big Yellow Jackets would build nests in the soft ground,with pine needles covering 100% of the ground you can easily step on a big nest.

 

I've been stung more times than I can count and it hurts like heck.Good thing I'm not allergic to them but my brother is and they put him in the hospital twice.

 

That's one of the reasons we moved away from the farm.My 2 uncles and my aunt still run the tree farm.I go down and lend them a hand with trimming every couple of months.

Late August, early September they attack without provocation around here. You learn to watch for them.
I was swarmed once as a youngster by a ground nest and it made a believer out of me.
Over the years, Many, many people have been hospitalized and some with allergies have been killed.

Obviously, wasps are just like people. They shouldn't be profiled. Know your enemies!

I found this while perusing the farm/garden section of Clist.

I've had some bad experiences with these. I climbed a tree when I was a kid with one hanging in it. Luckily I only got stung a couple times. I don't think I've ever run so fast in my life. $100, really? I'm sure I could find my own for less lol.

Most of the ones in my area are 25' in the air on the end of a branch.
