    I worked on rooftop HVAC units where your only access was a long extension ladder. Wasps loved to use those units for nests. Unfortunately the only way you knew it had a nest was when you started to disassemble it. Ooops....too late.... Problem was, that extension ladder was the only way down also. Was a bit faster in my younger days. I would go back up and spray the nest, but the scouts didn't seem to want to cooperate

    Did anyone continue to watch Utube? Check this one listen to them hitting the camera.
    In Rednek's case I think the spray was the only option. As mentioned using fire, plastic bag, explosives, etc. highly depends on the situation.
