How the fug do I get rid of these bastards?

So my buddy tells me grab a broom, smack the poo out of em and run..Fug that I'd rather wrestle a bear (hate insects).

So I'm guessing its time to call killingsworth or somebody....just afraid they may charge too much for something like that.

I know theres plenty of older poster's on here who have surely encountered this problem, help me out with some advice fellas. Thanks in advance

We've used wd40 before. I don't remember the results, as I was standing in the house. My hubby just gave me a mean look, so maybe the results weren't so great.

Got a pic? Spray it at night with Raid or some product like that will kill it I would suggest gas but it under your porch. Make sure to do it at night when they are all in the nest.

Don't use raid or wd 40! from Lowes or Home depot get a wasp spray that empties the whole can in abot 5 seconds and Freezes them! It will say so on the can. Your right ,us old gaffers know a thing or two.

Use any sort of flying insect killer from Lowe's. Fun to spray them and watch them fall dead out of the air. Had to get rid of a yellow jacket swarm in the front yard a week ago.

Me + ungodly amount of awesome chemicals >> stoopid flyin' bugs

The broom idea sounds like an instant hit on YouTube.

Spray with wd40, then whack the hell of the nest with a broom.

Had the same thing at my house.

The Hornet Spray at night is the best option.

Or a powerful waterhose at night. Knock the nest down, and the ones that don't die will leave. At night is the key thing. The little buggers can't see at night.
