The day we picked-up our TT, we had our 3 boys with us for the PDI. When the mechanic warned us about the damage mud daubers can do & asked if I wanted him to install the screens, I declined because they were over-priced. However, one of my sons took what he said to heart. He hovered over me while I ordered the screens online & then anxiously waited for the package to arrive. He bugged me hourly until I installed them & only relaxed when all screens were in place!

Later that summer I installed Maxxis tires. After I forgot to stop & re-check my lug nuts 10 miles out & consequently damaged a rim, I made him the son in charge of making sure we inspect all lug nuts prior to leaving... He bugs & bugs until I check each one. Gotta love how the camping experience helps teach kids responsibility. Some day he will have his own car & I know that he will take care of it...

Had the same problem last summer. I found at the local hardware store a can of hornet and wasp nest killer. It has a strong jet when pressed allowing for a long distant shot. Thing is you have to get a bunch of the stuff inside the hole to be effective. Don't wait around and see if it works, just run. Scrapping the nest off later on, 1-2 hours is easy enough, but make sure there is nothing left inside.
Good luck.

I place dog/cat flee collars inside all the exposed openings works great. And I live in the country and have hornets all over.

If the nest is active, use the hornet spray at night so they are all inside the nest. If the weather have been below freezing for a while they'll be dead anyway.
