    Default how to deal with a hornet nest - hillbilly style

    cutting my grass this morning, I was making a pass where my lawn meets the woodline and ZAP! I got stung right in the head. Oh boy did that hurt. I looked up(after running away of course) and sure enough, about 8 ft. up the tree was a hornet nest. Little bastards! Well I thought I'd return the favor. Walked in the house and grabbed my handy dandy remington 870. Loaded up a few 2 3/4 magnums (turkey shot) and went back outside, ready for battle. I unloaded 2 rounds from about 30ft away and - no more nest. Who needs an exterminator? :D

    Correct the hornets were doing what they needed to do, defend their home. ;)

    and maybe arrested by the police for discharging a firearm. At the very least PETA would be at his door by now.

    There had to be some survivors or a few stragglers outside the nest at the time of your attack. I imagine they are plotting their revenge.

    Hornets only live for a few months. You might want to keep an eye out until the beginning of winter.;)

    Good luck.
