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.

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.
