    So.

    Anyone know how to get destroy paper wasp nests?

    Preferably in a way that doesn't piss off the paper wasps and cause them to eat me alive?

    There are sprays available that can be sprayed from a distance. A couple of years ago, I found some that sprayed a foam that encapsulated them as it killed them. But, I cannot remember the brand name. Nevertheless, any stand-off wasp spray will work without subjecting you to stings.

    As a side note, we have wasps here, I dont know if they are specifically paper wasps, but either way, I had a hive hanging from the roof eve, I shot it with a water hose from a distance and didnt have any trouble.
