  • I would try getting some SEVIN dust and getting it into the hole in the door frame where you see them coming and going. I have found a link that might help some, but they go to extremes and all I did when we had bees getting into the house was to toss the SEVIN dust all around the frame of the basement window where I saw them entering. The bees (hornets) will then crawl through the dust when they enter or exit and they will have the SEVIN dust on their bodies and will take it into the nest with them. This will kill all the bees/hornets in the nest. I know it worked for us, and I would assume it would also work for hornets. Good luck!

  • Sevin is no longer available because it causes cancer.

  • It's available where I live. I had just bought some from the lawn & garden store.
