That's a beaut. I've only had one small European Wasp nest at my place, the rest are just normal mud and paper wasps. I don't mind them since they catch the spiders, but I did think I should knock down the larger paper wasp nests under the carport.

I have seen this used.......    http://www.bayergarden.co.uk/Products/f/Foaming-Wasp-Nest-Destroyer

 

or....if you like a slight adrenaline rush, light a twisted piece of newspaper, and when the weather is chilly/coldish/evening time.....just wave the lit paper under the nest enough to destroy the inhabitants. Note:...make sure you have a clear escape path....just in case !

Whatever you do, don't do what my father-in-law did with a largeish wasp nest in his garden hedge.

 

Take half a pint of petrol, add one match, strike and apply !

 

Fifteen years later you could still see the hole in the hedge.
