A little diesel and a loooooooooooooooooong match.

[wonders what those wasps could do to a bear if the whole nest was somehow introduced into a cave of sleeping bears...along with a timed fireworks display...and maybe some bird crap]

Twice I've seen people run over bumble bee nest burried in the ground, and all hell breaks loose. Whilst they were cutting grass. Both times the engine was left running on the tractors when they left from the onslaught of stings.................lol.........one was my father..........The other was a dozer operater who was alergic to bee stings...........my son was the first on the seen with the fire dept.......Drug his arse to safety and recovered the dozer the next day..........Don't mess with mother nature...............

As a teenager, was plowing with a little Ford 9N tractor, and plowed up a yellow jacket nest. I let them have the tractor. It stopped when it plowed it's way to an oak tree, and stalled out.

About six years ago my father and I were mowing this elderly lady's field for her and my dad drove over a yellow jacket nest, he had me go get my .410 and a box of #9s and told me to go nuts on them

I'd love to ensure all those wasps were killed. Winter cold would probably be a really good start. Then enshroud it with a popped can of Hot Shot. I do it annually about this time of year in the attic when we'll be away for the weekend. It took three cans and two weekends to destroy a colony of carpenter ants I could hear in a wall and see one in a bathroom once in a while.

Once when I was young, a friend and I were walking on a log fallen across a creek. My friend got to the other side first, stepped in some sort of animal scat and proceeded to try to scrape the scat off his shoe on a stump. Unfortunately for us, yellow jackets had built a nest in the stump. I was still on the log 20 feet above the creek when those yellow jackets began stinging me. There wasn't a whole lot of options.

How much fun would that be if you had a sting proof suit and a 12 Ga with lots of ammo. Hey wait, I just found another good use for an AR-15 and one of those "high capacity" magazines
