i grew up in the country and when anyone of my friends would found a paper hornets nest like yours we'd get 12 gauge shotguns with buckshot,stand back a good enough distance to run like hell and not get stung and on the count of 3 we'd blow that bitch to hell.looked like we sent it thru a paper shredder! then we'd then run like holy fuckin hell!
your thread reminded me of the good ol' days. ;-)

i didn't have a cool outfit though =[
did it at night. good thing they sleep,
went up to it, squirted it with some
lighter fluid from a few feet away,
they didn't stir. went up to it with
a can of wd-40 in one hand and a
propane torch in the other hand.
sprayed the wd-40 from a foot away
for about 2 seconds and then
i ignited the spray with the torch.
flamethrowered it with the can for
like 10 seconds, pausing when the
flames drew too near to the can's
nozzle. i supplemented it wiht more
lighter fluid from time to time.
only took 10 minutes or so.
those bastards never had a chance.

one day two of the little sumbiches stung me
war was declared
an 8 oz bottle of malethion concentrate dumped in the hole did the trick
once the hive realized it was going to die, the adults returning from afar, would stand at the hole and fidgit knowing if they went in they would die but after a minute they would go in to rescue the larve
they would come out with a larve in their grasp and fly off
sad thing was they only got half way across the yard with their baby before they dropped out of the sky dead too
they were a dangerous neusance that I am very glad are gone
havent had a nest in the yard for 5 years since.
sexy wasphuntin gear there dood ! damn sexy

Then again, i might take a can of starting fluid (woot 50% ether) and burn the ever living hell out of it.
That'd be fun :P

I have been known to nail Crici-pedes (crickets with a millon legs) with a flaming stream of 90+ % Rubbing Alch from a spray bottle :)
Leaves no residue on the walls, and the bastards don't get a chance to run.

Where I grew up in the south those little bastards would get you from the ground. All it took was someone to step on the nest and they'd attack the hell out of everyone in sight. They didn't really hurt all that much but, they certainly would leave welps on you and would scare ya.

when i get stung the area gets a swollen beyond a size i would expect a bee sting would be capable of.
once when i was a kid i was at my grandmas house playing, there was a trolly that went by about 4 times a day, we decided it would be funny to run up and moon everyone on the trolly.
so we ran up to the closest convienent place and pulled out pants down.
i got stung in the ass twice and behind the ear three times and once above my right eyebrow.
the doctor said that if i had been stung in the throat or near the neck i may have came close to dieing.
but man, my face got so damn huge. my eyes were swollen shut for a week and a half.
i hate bee stings, but man i love fucking with em.

Anyway, I got stung like 7 times in the back by those damn things so I decided to head home. I can run faster than the mower goes but I didnt want to leave it behind.
Shithead decided to stay behind and do battle. He would kill anything that wasnt a dog or human or over 200 pounds (cattle etc...). So he liked to bite at flying insects as they buzzed by his head. He probibly bit a dozen of them because when he finally gave up with his tail between his legs he came running home and his mouth was so swolen, it looked funny.
Well, the environmentalists may not like it but about a quart of gasoline will get rid of those things. It eats their wings off. And it looks really cool if you ignite it.
Wasps build on walls and shit here, they are easy to kill. There arent too many bees. But I also do battle every year with Hornets. Three shots from a 12 guage at about 50 yards still gives me time to get back to the house, and keeps their nests from getting too big.

Last summer I had a nest of these bastards in my fence. It's tubed old school fencing. So I sprayed the hell out of them in an opening with spray on car wax and then they left. So a couple of days later, they set up shop in a corner of porch on the ceiling. So then I sprayed the hell out of them with the water hose, knocking the nest down and then they were gone for good. So I thought! Then those bastards built a nest in my fern plant. I brought the plant in at night when it was cold and the damn bees were flying around in the house. I was wondering how the hell those bastards were getting in. Then one morning I put the fern out for some sun and while watering it I noticed a nest in the center of the plant . Then I realized those bastards had motivated from the fence, to the corner of the porch and from there right into my damn fern that was basking in the sun on the porch. All homes within a few feet of each other. They don't like to move too far away once their home has been invaded. lol.

we were talking about how the africanized bees arent taking over like people thought they would have, but whats happening is the bees are leaving.
for some reason scientists are trying to figure out, the bees dont like to stay.
which probably represents another problem, kinda like how deminishing polar bear populations are showing how ice caps are melting.
i tried to find something on the internet about it but quit shortly after.
it just reminded me of this thread...
but i dont really mind a few degrees warmer if it means the bees are gunna get outta here.
i love my honey but man i hate bees...
