I've searched here for advice in old threads and didn't see much information so I'm going to ask; What's the best (safest) way to get rid of a hornets nest?
I was backing a borrowed skid loader under my shed roof due to some upcoming storms and heard a low humming noise after I shut it off. My first thought was yellowjackets, but I didn't see anything buzzing around. I kept searching until I discovered this nasty nest on the back side of the shed. And THEN I saw the buzzing around! About 4' from the ground I saw the nest. I took this photo a couple of hours later, after they had calmed down a bit.
If I wait until dark and hose the entrance with spray, do they have a "back door" they can sneak out of and get me? I thought about shooting some "Great Stuff" foam in the opening and then torching it, but I don't want to set my shed on fire either.
Anybody done this before?
