    What you describe as hornets in the ground are yellow jackets which inhabit gopher holes, they are the most vicious of all. More people die each year from yellow jacket stings than poisonous snake bites.
    Suit up, be careful. The chemical is not critical,I use PoisonFree Wasp Spray (Victor). Make sure you disrupt the nest, I use a shovel, in the entrance must be completely closed before you leave.
