Not bees D=

Found the hive. Some things I was wondering about. They didn't leave a stinger, and they hurt much much more than bee stings usually do.
I gots me some hornets.

......Yep. You're gonna certainly have a time getting rid of them. I hope you have a good game plan.

So far, the plan is to splash some gasoline on the nest and run like hell

While we're on the topic of dangerously bad plans, I'd like to add Styrofoam to your own suggestion...

On a safer note, a few fire extinguishers might work - suffocate them and lower their body temps, without the risk of your whole house going up.

I'll ask around and see if we have some in the neighborhood

Those mother-fuckers are the only yellow-striped creatures that can be sprayed with impunity, and not feel guilty about it.

...should kinda know... every year they try to colonize the tiny area just above the backdoor...

Hmm, little wolf girl huddled in a corner whimpering would kinda take my mind off of them

Holey shit, hope that you aren't allergic to them.


And good luck getting rid of those fuckers. If I could do it, I would use a flame thrower on them.

A possible way to mess with those fuckers is spraying a soapy solution on the them and their nest tho you will need to make sure to coat every last little fucker and their nest. http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2013/05/29/natural-w...

Not allergic, or I'd have known it by now. They've already swarmed me once.

well I am mortified by wasp....also deathly allergic to them

what you got there would be paper wasp and they love to nest in places with lots of wood they can eat........

they are very nasty when disturbed and id honestly suggest opening a can of whoop-ass...I mean Raid.....on them

*goes and buries herself in a huge pile of blankets* tell me when they are gone kay?

Nasty when disturbed is right. I'll be sure to r.. let you know when they're gone. ^_^

Those are some nasty wasps you have there. The nest looks kinda big for you to take alone. I would recommend getting a specialist to remove it. If you still want to do it by yourself, get well protected ( thick clothing, cover as much as you can ), get wasp spray ( I don't think gasoline is a good idea ), and do it at the coldest point at night ( 2 am or so ), since wasps are inactive in cold weather.

I'm in Texas, and it's summer. There is absolutely no cold part of the day whatsoever. We're just going to have to hit them and RUN! Also, can't find beekeepers, and they wouldn't want those fuckers anyway. I'll try to get my step-dad not to go with the gasoline idea, but it's a coin-flip whether or not he'll listen. Dish soap seems to be the way to go.

Ark means a Pest Removal Specialist, MB. Beekeepers don't usually want wasps, anyway. I know the Feds have a department for entomological research - maybe you should see if they have a local office that might like some new subjects to work with.

Don't think I can afford that. We'll see what my step-dad decides to do and hope it's not something dumb.

I suggest searching the internet for how to remove wasps, before you try a randomly creative (but not necessarily smart and efficient) method. There are special anti-wasp sprays, some methods including smoke (and suffocating them) and even some with fire, traps to thin the amount of the insects, or you can just call a removal specialist. Always wear protective gear... and don't start a fire where it can grow out of control.
MystBunny

Yeah, search suggests soapy water. I have a wasp spray, but it takes way too long to work on them, and of course, I would prefer them not to still be able to fly after me. Believe me we won't be setting fire to the nest, seeing as how it can easily spread over my house. My step-dad wanted to just toss some gasoline onto it and let it soak in.

someone suggested putting gasoline on it and then covering it with a wet towel to suffocate them with the smoke. If you have a little cub you can tie it up with legs spread and use if as a decoy... wait wut.

First off, how did you mix them up? Hornets are like 3 to 5 times the size of bees...
unless you actually have wasps, then they are normally-sized but flatter and not fluffy like bees.

Anyway, really hope you get rid of them, they are dangerous... as they should be.
If there is any way to get them gone without killing them, I would vote for that, but at this point, that would take a professional.

EDIT: looked at the pictures. Yep, clearly hornets... and you actually provoked them before? Not a smart move.

They might possibly be yellow-jackets, but my step-dad said hornets so I went with that. Also I didn't know there was a nest in here when I sprayed the ones I saw till they started swarming. Got me in the leg and I limped about a quarter mile to borrow Granny's car for the bug bomb, which now I know turned out to be only a temporary solution.

bees also hardly ever sting except for killer bees

hornets sting all the damned time

I lost my fear of bees when I was in high-school and there were always lotsa bees around the trash cans outside. Nobody ever got stung that I know of.

Here's what you do. Go to your local gardening supply store or places that would sell pest removal stuff. Buy the one for hornets. Wait until nightfall when they are asleep and not active. Spray the fuck out of it whilst following the instructions on the stuff you buy. I've had to deal with similar problems at least once a year

EDIT: I might be wrong. I know this works for wasps but perhaps not for Hornets...
MystBunny

Hornets are technically wasps though, yesh?

Are they? If they are the stuff I buy here in NY works wonders. it's this can thing with a jet nozzle thing. Spray at nighttime until thoroughly soaked and remove the nest once they're all dead. Here I buy it at Petsmart, and walmart. I don't know what stores they have in Texas
MystBunny

Nearest petsmart is about an hour away, but I also hear soapy water will drown them.

never tried it, but the internet never lies, right?

Just bee safe.
