I took a gas can to a nest of some type of mean bees in the side of a hill. They attacked me when I was mowing with a lawn mower. They got me once just below the eye. Similar to c3's story, I baled out. The tractor got stuck on the side of the hill, one wheel spinning. The nest was basketball size.

My uncle in his unfinished work shop, a nest of wasps formed after about 2 months of being un-attended. Well, we pulled out the smokers and wasp spray. No one got stung; but, we ran fast to the house, you should have seen my uncle move and wasps in trail!

Burning shop down was a no-no!

Several summers ago, my Dad was sitting on a porch having a beer with the guy who lived across the street. When the guy went home, he proceeded to try to kill a nest of bees. My Dad saw him trying to swat them away from him. When his wife got home from work, the man was dead in his kitchen from a bee sting. The victim didn't know he was allergic to them.

That 22w foot wasp nest looks like a job for our resident exterminator..........Shihan.

Brakleen. Drops them fast, with no poisonous residue left on surfaces.
