Default What to do with leftover hops and trub?

Well, obviously fill yesterdays boil kettle back up with water, heat it to 200+ plus degrees and pour it down a bees nest in the front yard.
What else would you do with it?

OK, sadly no one else was here to take action shots, but those guys weren't too happy!

I don't think the few stragglers that got away will ever feel the same about sweet smelling wort.

I remember when i was a kid we shot a pretty big firework rocket into a wasps nest. That got rid of them!

I think it would be funnier to take a some det.chord and wrap up a large hive and let that s. o. b. take a 1200m/sec shot.

We took out a hornets' nest on my parents farm with a 12 gauge slug out the passenger window of our truck. When we circled back, there was nothing left of it at all.

...I thought shooting from a vehicle was not lawful?

It was on the family farm out in the country, not in city limits and
no where near any other houses.

I hate bees / hornets/ wasps/ and all critters with stingers. I can ski anything from here tot he alps but run and scream like a girl when a critter with a stinger flies at me.
