I know I'm really late, but all you need is a pump up sprayer and some soap, the more sudz the better. The soappy water with sufficate them, works on all hornets, bumble bees and also honey bees. Plus you can stand about 15 ft. away.

I know it's an old post too but I just want to make sure everybody understands not to do this to honey bees. Always call a beekeeper whenever you encounter an unwanted honey bee swarm or hive.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

a good size cup of water, and a quarter cup of the dishwashing liquid soap , pour the soap in the water and stir gentley. then fling it up on the nest (the not the cup :wink: ), they will drop like you shot them with wasp killer. then hose of the soap, washing your wall !
