What is the best way to get rid of a hornet or wasp nest.?
Consider getting experts in, if it could be a big one.
Otherwise, if you can see and safely reach the entrance they use, wait until they are inactive and apply suitable insect killing powder around the entrance and any likely alternatives.
Take care, as even if they are inactive, they could still attack if disturbed.
Are they hornets or wasps, as hornets are likely to be more aggressive.
I would not want to DIY tackle anything "busy". The powders work pretty well against small nests with clearly identified entry points, but if it's wide access, you are likely to have them react to the threat.
Any suggestions on how to get a .22 hornet double barreled rifle made without spending a fortune?
Bob got it right. If a gunsmith wanted to do you a BIG FAVOR, he or she could make you a 22 Hornet side-by-side for about $10,000.
For $1,000, it's hard to find even a quality side-by-side shotgun, let alone a rifle that needs to be "regulated" so that the barrels are straight.
Does anyone know how to get rid of hornet nest that are underground?
If you buy the kind that kills them from far away, you can spray around the opening of the hole, then they won't go back into it, and hopefully find a new home far away. Do it at night though, or they will attack you.
What company can can rid of a forming hornet or bee nest?
Do a search online for the "Waspinator". It's basically a fake Wasp nest and is supposed to work on the principle that Wasps and Hornets are territorial and will avoid places where another colony already lives.
I've made 2 of these out of landscape cloth (instead of buying them) and they've been remarkably effective. Our log house sits on a hill surrounded by forest and we didn't have the usual problem with Wasps, Yellow Jackets or Ground Waps this year.
I'm planning on writing up instructions and possibly making a video but haven't had time.
What is the difference between hornet,bee and the aggressive bee?
theyre simply not bees--hornets arent. theyre under a different scientific 'file'.
bees & aggressive bees r 'bees'. the reason they differentiate the 2 is because it may b the difference between life and death.
u may have a picnic r pasture u animals n an area where there r bees. but u probably wud not if they r aggresive (killer bees)
enuf stings from any bees can kill. but generally the 'regular' bees will only attack long enuf 2 get u well away from their ;home'.
killer bees, opposed 2 'regular' bees, swarm out twice as many bees & chase twice as far.
meaning if u get tired from running, r trip and fall, r theres just not enuf distance available 4 u (animal) to run--chances are youre gonna die.
What relieves the pain and swelling of a hornet sting?
I can remember as a child getting into a hornet's nest and was bitten at least a dozen different places. Mainly the face area. I remember my mother took some tobacco and applied it each one of the bites. Apparently, it was an old wives remedy, It really worked, the tobacco immediately started drawing out the poison from the bites and the swelling on my face went down. I would suggest to you, this is definitely worth a try.
