I like the nest for decor as well. A nice addition to a man room.

Like everyone else said wait till a good freeze before you mess around with them. (though taking pot shots at it with a potato gun is quite entertaining)

It is too bad they can be such a nuisance, because they really aid in managing other pests. On to the point, a few factors that can help when dealing with them. Light-colored clothing is a good choice. Beesuits are white because of thermal reasons and white is not a recognized typical 'threat' color. All the animals that would harass them are darker colored. And, as others have mentioned, colder weather is a good time to deal with them. They can still sting, but they need to group up to generate heat and are clumsy and slow without it.

Always searching for the method to the madness. http://www.yellowjacket-hornet-removal.com/

I assume these are what we call white faced hornets. Got stung once and felt like I got hit with a hammer.
