The first shotgun I ever shot was a double barrel 12 guage 40 years ago. Dad said aim for the tree and give it both barrels. I did, ended up on my butt and there was a hole in the tree where the hive used to be. Works well. I don't think they will come after you if the nest is that high but if you need to get rid of them, call a bee keeper.

thanx everyone i have found out what t is and also that i SHOULD leave it alone, according to most of what i found on them they are docile and wont sting unless the nest is disturbed, since the nest is so high , i think ill wait til fall once they are dead and then remove the nest


once again thanx to everyone, i love this site

White faced hornets are far from docile. I don't know how many times I've been stung the past 20 years by white hornets when I wasn't even messing with their nest. They're arguably one of the most aggressive type of common stinging insect.

50-60 feet up, you should be fine. You are well out of their flight path.
