This is what you need http://www.doitbest.com/Insecticides...sku-716673.dib
Works like a champ. I had bee's that made a nest inside my hot tub. I put my complete snowmobile suit on helmet and all. I walked up unscrewed the panel and plucked the nest and walked it out to the field. I had a few bee's stuck to the suit but not bad.

If you can't get under the deck, you can just try to flood them. soak the area and it will eventually collapse their nest, killing the queen inside.
Neither bees nor wasps (with exception to some large digger wasps) nest in the ground. They are either yellowjackets or sandhill hornets

I can get under there, but don't know how fast I can get out if they attack...... so I am not going under there.
No, bees do not nest in the ground.

Call an exterminator.
Let him get stung.

Do you have a block foundation? I remember as a kid having 'giant helicopter sized bees' living in the ground. In reality, their nest was in the block , one course down into the ground, and 3 blocks high in total. The opening for their nest was a couple feet from the house, underneath some shrubbery. I remember my old man had to remove the shrubs, and cut some holes in the sill plating to apply their medicine.

I have cicada killer wasps in my yard. I don't mind them, since the don't sting unless highly provoked. Yellow jackets on the other hand... I would kill them for sure.

This is the type of protection I have to use at work for them, and I still get stung on a regular basis.

I did this for some yellow jackets or hornets or wasps or whatever they are that created a nest in the wall of my house. They want $250 for one trip out!

I bought powder of boric acid and have been shooting it into the opening of the hole over the past 3 nights and the hive is dying. Not dead totally dead yet but that's only because I can't get the powder directly onto the hive.

It is not dead because 99% of what you are using is inert, and without a license you cannot buy residual insecticides that are adequate to do the job.

Just like any other proffesion, hiring a proffesional gets the job done right the first time.

Yellowjackets and sandhill hornets are extremely aggressive and can sting multiple times quickly. They also can have nests with 5,000 or more of their pissed off sisters. Honestly this can be a life or death situation. More than half a dozen times in my pest control career (1996-2006 and 2013-present) I have had to respond to a call where the first "backyard exterminator" was killed by the nest. And dozens more calls where they were hospitalized.

Don't go all "hire a pro" with me. My point was, the hive would've been dead on the first day if I had direct access to the hive.

That is the exact stuff i use for nests in the walls and ground. It's devastating!

1) Become one with the insects

2) Enter the hive once they have accepted you

3) Find the queen

4) Rape the Queen

5) burn it all down


At least thats what Dale Gribble would do
