This reminds me of a time my dad and I were doing some irrigation work in the backyard and we dug up a hornets nest.  I didn't realize until I started getting stung...a lot.  Good times.

This not your backyard is it?

I would rather be mauled by a bear or eaten by a shark

build a wood fire on top of the nest if you can, and then have fun watching them try to attack the fire

I like a big lighter and aerosol spray and torch them.

They can burrow out of the foam. They may suffocate first though. These guys are relentless I have seen them eat through bricks of a house to get in. No joke.

Put a turban on your head and call yourself Chemical Ali before dousing them.

You can get a spray that will kill them and shoots a stream of poison a very long distance.  I have used it.  It works.

 
used this last week and it seems to have done the job well... after both my dogs got stung and i got stung while weed whacking, i figured it was time they found somewhere else to live.

their nest was underground and i'm still not sure where, so i doused a pretty large portion of the ground i thought they were. they'll apparently re-enter the nest after being sprayed and spread it to the nest as well. they've not been swarming in that area since and i've seen a few checking out new places to set up shop

Same here...I was about 10 years old and building a fort in the woods with a friend of mine and dug one up. Got stung more time that I could count and when I finally ran all the way home, my mom had to put gloves on a pull bees out of my hair. It was terrible. 

 

 

 

 

 

OK, I wasn't 10 years old and this was actually just last week but building a fort in the woods is fun at any age.

The product in your hair acted like a glue trap?
