^ He should have skipped the 3 stings and just taken the tiger torch to the nest. Then, he could have used a big fire extinguisher on his front porch.

No one is recommending hiring a professional to remove it?

Have to go with Dave T. I tend to leave bees alone around the home unless it's one of those three...then they have to go. If you aren't comfortable doing it yourself hire a pro.

yikes man...you let that thing go until it got that big?

I'd hit it with the long range spray a few times then knock it off with a 2x4. if that's a fail, hire someone.

the last larger nest we had fortunately was on the ground so my tax dollars bailed me.

Bees are good....leave them alone.

Wasps, hornets, yellowjackets....must be destroyed!

We have lots of yellowjacket traps around our yard, and I just ordered one of these: Bug-A-Salt Gun

One of only a few traumatic incidents I recall from my childhood (5 y.o. at the time) was getting my ass lit up by wasps after following our neighbor's cat behind some of our shrubbery. There was a nest pretty deep into the foliage that my parents never saw. About a dozen stings on my back. My screaming had every one of our neighbors bolting out their doors towards my house to investigate the commotion. Terrified my mom pretty good.

So yeah, eff 'em. Cans of poison, then knock it down. After that you can burn it too, just for fun.

A judicious use of spray adhesive can work in a pinch...I have first hand experience. You do have to be quick though

Good luck, and do it from a distance in the evening. If you decide to attempt it with another strategy, please record and upload so I can be entertained.
