organic hornet control measures

We had a problem today with some aggressive hornets on a pear tree.

There was a short debate on who would suit up and move the nest.

Anna wanted to do it but I had to pull the Head of the Household card and asked her to take pictures from a safe distance while I snipped the problem limb and threw the whole thing over a hillside.

Anna and Mark,

This is for both for your posts today.

Good for you, Mark, for pulling Head of Household!!!

Instead of keeping the various insects alive to multiply every year, why not put them in the stove and burn them? Yes, I know you don't want a stove burning in 90 degree heat, but you would them be rid of them. Or make a small fire outside and burn them there.
