Killing Hornets
Killing hornets is much like killing wasps except hornets are less aggressive towards people and eat insects making them beneficial. Wasps begin by eating insects and then change to eating sweet things making contact between them and people more often causing problems. Hornets only eat insects making contact between them and people less frequent. Hornets are also less aggressive and will only attack if they feel their nest is at risk of attack. However wasps will be a pain if you have food that they want. Killing hornets can be done pretty much in the same ways as wasps are killed. Locating their nest should be you first job. Nest are normally built in a hollow tree, wall cavity, chimney, loft space, eaves of a house etc. Products are available that can be sprayed from a distance into the entrance of the nest, killing the hornets. Before killing, protecting your self is very important. Make sure all your skin or as much as possible is covered by some form of clothing. Layers are also a good idea to help prevent a hornets sting reaching your skin. The best time to attack a nest is when the sun has gone down and before it rises again as they will all retreat to the nest then.

Any products purchased for killing hornets should be handled with care and any instruction provided should be read and understood for the users safety.
If you are unable to deal with a nest your self, there are professionals and companies who will deal with it for you.
For hornets found in and around your house, letting them out is best idea. Squashing a hornet in your home is not such a good idea as they will release a pheromone that tells other hornets that the nest is under attack making them aggressive. The best thing to do is vacuum them up and leave them in the vacuum to die from starvation or dehydration over a couple of days.
