Kind of along the same lines of flame thrower gardening and suppressed raccoon management.

We had some red and yellow plastic fly bait things in Iraq. A yelow plastic looking sheet covered by a red plastic screen, with attached capsules on either end. You pressed the capsule to break it like a smelling salt or glow stick. Smelled like straight hot garbage. Flys would come from miles around, land on the screen and start eating on the yellow sheet. Within seconds they'd be breakdancing on the floor, spasming and floping around like nerve gas hit them. Puddles of flys would form on the floor around these things every day until the population was down. Never seen anything like it in the states.

Yellow jackets typically only swarm a short distance. But any bee sting instantly pisses me off and I seek revenge. I always had a Battle Drill for bees similarly to an arty strike. I'll see ya ahead about 100 yds. I've had to use smoke grenades before to allow students to go back and collect equipment. Had to use a jungle penetratror once on the side of a mountain to pull out a student who was allergic to them.

Those damn white face black hornets are the worst in my opinion. They'll chase your ass across the county. They fucking hurt too.

You would be surprised how many folks have never been stung before. You had to consider students/troops in that category as allergic until you found out.

Yep. X2 on the 30' nuclear foam.

There are people who prefer fire, fire, FIRE!

Haven't removed any wasp nest so far, however my mother had one in community garden and she called fire dept. They used some kind of foam to completely shut down the nest, pack it up and all was done.

My grandfather used the old tried and true wait till night when they are in the nest, smoke em, then knock the nest down into a large plastic or paper bag. Worked like a charm.

Haven't watched the vid, but I assume it's gas and Yellow Jackets.

Run over nest while mowing, get stung, wait until dark, pour about a quart of gas down hole, light, problem solved.

Or, like our former County Sheriff. A good guy, spent his entire life in LE. Outdoorsman his whole life.

Gets stung while mowing. Barely makes it to his front door. Dies. Last year.

You and I were just talking about those fucking devil bees in Panama. I've been nailed by most critters, but those hateful sonsabitches were demonic in their approach to applying pain to flesh, and distance meant nothing to those GPS bandits, they'd stay with you and sting your ass while you were hunched over, gasping for air.

Yeah, my brother is allergic. I'm not, luckily - as a kid, my hobby was catching snakes - they like to nest in the Moss "Tuffets" in swamps - I've had entire nests on my legs, way fun, and nowhere to go (quickly)

It Could Have Been Worse

A story told by members of the 17th EOD at Ft. Campbell in the mid-60's goes like this. Bubba's momma was having trouble with wospers on her front porch and wanted Bubba's help getting rid of them. Bubba, having acquired a military smoke grenade agreed to take care of the problem. After studding the situation Bubba figured that if he stood on a step-stool and held the smoke like a 'Statue of Liberty' torch he could direct all of the smoke onto the wosper nest and they would all leave, and that is what he did.

Forensic analysis of the scene revealed that Bubba had use the following device; Grenade, Smoke WP Bursting Type. The fire department saved Bubba's momma, but not Bubba, or the wospers, or momma's house.

Other option is to take your wet/dry vac and put the hose next to the hole. Turn it on and then plug it in (the noise will bring them all out). Let it run for about 15-30 minutes and you should have all of them (usually several hundred). Then leave the vac in the sun for a day or two and whack it every time you go by, laughing evilly as those nasty yellow jacket bastards bake to death. THEN pour them out, put gasoline on them and burn the corpses.

Rip off their heads, and put them on toothpicks all around your property, as a warning to others...
