          Grab a few rakes & "spear" them over it to bring it down. Wait a bit & plow it over w/the riding mower after things settle down...using full speed of coarse...
          Worked for me once & I didnt get stung.
          I'm not alergic though & had my riding leathers on just in case...

            The nest would make cool garage art. If you could kill the swarm w/o damaging the nest.

            Those cans of wasp killer that spray 25ft work wonders. Get half a dozen cans and blast away.

            Wear long sleeves and pants of course

              Leave it alone. They catch many flies. They will be done with it late fall then you can retrieve it for an ornament.

              It's a sign of deep snows this winter. The higher up you see them has something to do with it.

                My neighbor called the professionals to remove a hornet's nest about the size of a football on the eave of her house. Did not ask for a quote.
                $350.00 later - no hornets.

                Nice tree! I always like flame or multiple streams of wasp killer, but then I was once in the Corps. Massive destruction!

                    I collect them and have a bunch of them. They are beautiful.

                      Thanks to climate change we’ll have palm trees before too much longer.
                      Actually, summers here are beautiful. From mid May until mid September it’s really nice here.

                            I have one on my house. They don’t bother me, I don’t bother them.
                            But, if you want to have some fun put in a purse and lay it on the side of the road. (Don’t forget the camera.)
