Wait until dark when all of the little buggers are back in the hive and
then take a can or two of some wasp/hornet spray up the tower and soak the
hive. These cans will shoot 8-10 feet or more so you can be a little ways
away from the nest whilst nuking it.
If you are bitten, put some Adolph's Meat Tenderizer on the sting. The
pain and swelling will go away almost immediately.
