Watch the hive in the fall. Once the hornets leave, the tufted titmice will tear it to shreds to get at any remaining larvae. Fascinating.

If you are wanting to save the nest after you cut it down spray it with hair spray, this will help to preserve it for several years. The hornets will usually leave after the first frost.

Again... suggest leaving it somewhere other than the living room, as there are sometimes late-emerging larvae still in there, and if brought in where it is warm... :eek:
