I had two of those black hornet nests on my place. got stung just looking at one of them. Very painful.

I called an exterminator and paid him 70 bux to deal with them. Well worth it.

Had a yellow jacket nest under a shed, took my shop vac and set it up by the hole. Two days later no activity, sprayed some killer in the vacuum hose and sealed it up. Checked it 2 days later and must have killed 2000 of them bastids.

Sometimes yellow jackets will try to build a nest under our deck roof. I wait until dark, then take the hornet spray and spray it in the hole. Some hornets will try to crawl out, just give them a shot. If any should make it to flying, they are slow, just give them a squirt, they're easy to hit and they fall to the ground.

That's about the end of the nest. A day or two later, just scrape the nest off and dispose of it.

I’d just move, keep going north til you see snow, then drive another 2 hours and buy a house…

We have those hornets like that that build the big paper nest like in these pictures. You wait till its about 20 degrees or less to mess with the nest.
I tried to cut one down onetime when it was below freezing a little thinking it would be ok. There were still live ones in the nest. none got me. They were cold and were slow. But I had to run for it. I hear they hurt bad.

Yellow jacket stings are no walk in the park but those black hornets make yellow jackets look like rookies. They hurt like hell and the sting lasts for a good while......
