Propane torch, at night, in the hole of white faced hornet nest has worked
every time and many times for me.  There's "no way out alive" and the whole
nest goes up in flames quickly.  Obviously if the nest is out of the way where
no one will accidentally get in their flight path and the nest will not be
disturbed, it should just be left alone.
