Mornin everyone! Been busy with mark's daughter getting married this weekend so only had time to read and run. Mark has a problem. He needs to paint a customer's house and the second floor eave has a 10 inch hornet's nest. He was gonna go spray it this early am but called it off due to the customer having guests for the weekend. He did'nt want to get the hornets all fired up and maybe get someone stung. He could use some ideas cause he has to get up on a ladder to even spray them. Not easy to make a fast getaway from a second story ladder! Thanks, guys and gals for any help you may give. Rachel (for Mark)

Hornet's don't play.No way would I stand on a ladder.If the good hornet spray don't work,let a real bug man spray them with high test.31 stings one time while logging made me respect the critters.

Spray them at night when they are all home and in their beds. Most of the hornet sprays will allow you to stand 15-20 feet away from the nest. If he is real brave he can put a plastic bag over the nest at night and take it down.

Yes spray at night, also set a spotlight in the yard shinning on the nest. work in the shadows and any that that is missed will attack the light.
