an old garden sprayer with gasoline,find the hole,blast`em,stick the wand in the hole &flood the inside with gas,leave it be,,my grandfather used to attach a tin can on the end of a long pole,put a little gas in it,then hold it right under the nest,the fumes from the gas get`s em!

My Dad had a I thought cool way to do it,He had an old break over 12 gauge,One that wasnt much good anymore and he would dump out the BB"s from the shell and fill the shell with sand box sand,,,,,BOOM and nest and all were vaporized,It worked real good around buildings because the sand never damaged anything and he used to take them out from 20 to 30 feet away,On a really big nest you might need 2 shots but it worked real well and you got in a little target practice.

Playing with gasoline is crazy, I read here about not removing seat safty switches and the back up with mower engauged getting down right riled about it even. Yet it is ok to mess around with gasoline and other flamable crap,think it is cuite or some thing. They sell wasp and hornet spray all brands and types Cheap dollar stuff and more expencive pro stuff at Home Depot.

In the spring when you are out shopping for your golf balls stop in and buy a couple cans of wasp and hornet spray and stand 20 to 25 feet away and use the stuff when you needed to rid some place of wasp and hornets.

 

And leave the bees alone, they will you!!!!!!!!!!!

All the people I know who don't like bees, when they see them near, they jump up and flap their arms around.    DUH!

What would you do if a guy waved his hands at your face?

I like to knock down their hives this time of year when it is cold and they ain't active.... toss it in the trash..... 

we had one a couple of years ago in the clothesline poles..... saturated it and lit it on fire.....  had to do it a couple of times.... it was alot warmer out than it is today..... and they were out and about.

hornets do not use the same nest, they make new ones each year

You say inlaw...... He probably had enough, time for action. Then they would have something to complain about. Instead of the usual imaginary problem.

Years ago I took a plastic pop bottle,drilled a hole on the cap, stuck a gopher bomb fuse in the hole,poured a cup of black powder in the bottle,packed empty space with cotton,wrapped 3 layers of duct tape around entire thing,stuck it in the stump where the bees were and lit it.i had a nice explosion,millions of stump bits all over,and believe it or not pi++ed off bees.it killed most but what was left was not happy, they must have been deep into the stump.
