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.

Another instant cure is plain old household ammonia.  It neutralizes the
formic acid immediately and the pain ceases just as fast.  It is probably
more common that Adolph's Meat Tenderizer....
