I paid $160 for a guy to remove a bald-face hornets nest from my maple tree in the front yard. It was massive..and given what I saw him do..and the amount of effort it took..I do not recommend it as a DIY either, especially a nest that is inside your house.  He was getting lit up when he disturbed it, though obviously with the proper protective gear

We have a nest like that--maybe a little larger--in a rhododendron.  They'll be done with in a few weeks.  Everyone but the queen dies and she goes and hibernates somewhere for the winter.  The nest will be abandoned and a new one started by the queen somewhere else in the spring.

So does the queen carry her eggs all winter?

I had thoughts about letting it stay - but didn't want to risk it with a Golden and a toddler.
