Default Bald Faced Hornets

Well fellas, I just had my old pond pushed in and bulldozed level in our backyard. Trust me, I didn't WANT to do it, but the previous owners didn't keep it up and there was alot of debri and trash and sewer runoff in it.. NOT a good situation. There was no saving it. Well I had about 4 trees I wanted the bulldozer guy to take down as well and one of them I noticed when I got home that evening was still standing. Turns out there's a bald faced hornet's nest in it! The nest itself is about 15 ft in the air and attached to a limb coming out the side of the tree. My question is, does anyone know a good way to get rid of them? I've been told some interesting ways by some old timers.. one guy told me to take a .22 and shoot it down and let it lay for 3 days and all the hornets would be gone. My father-in-law said to wait till the first freeze and then use a ladder and climb up there and cut it down (HECK NO). Anyone else have any BRIGHT ideas??? lol Here are some pics I pulled off the internet... these aren't MY hornets!

...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
