    Bryan, I would wager before the next it dealt with some idiot will try to get all the honey from the Hornet's nest, thinking they are bees or that hornets make honey,LOL:p
    I had a cousin, one Summer our family went back to visit in the Midwest.
    I went over to visit and he was out in back next to a field and was loading his double barrel shotgun , he said he had to get rid of a wasps nest and figured the best way to do it was to blast it with both barrels , it would blow the nest to smitherreens and that would be it, they would go elsewhere and rebuild he told me.
    I know the next thing he did was blast the nest, we both ran in and slammed the door shut and had lots of HORNETS not wasps as my cousin assumed. BTW, this nest was large, not as big s the oen you linked to but about 4 ft by 2 ft, and a LOT of those suckers in that one so I can bet the car sized one has a zillion.
    I would not want to live near that for miles if I was allergic to stings like those,but there are some folks I have known who werre just the opposite and barely reacted to not even as much as a skeeter bite!

    I suppose a pinata party is out of the question.

    I remember a commercial for a power washer some 20 years ago. The theme song was to the tune of 'Greasy, grimy, gopher guts' as the product was used to eliminate various kinds of stains. The last line was, 'Now, I think I'll sock it to a hornets nest...UH-OH!'

    But they didn't say if it was one of the old style original Beetles or one of the new post-1997 models?

    How did they not notice it before it got that large?

    You need to notify the pest authorities and get them to destroy the nest. A good sized flame thrower like the US marines used on Okinawa Island should do it
