There are sprays that are avalible to buy in most large stores that kill bees and wasps. My dad used one on a wasp nest, and it had a 20 foot range....Sadly, the wasps did aswell...He ran into the house covered in stings. Hahah, it was hilarious.

Anyway, I'd recommend a spray since fire is no a choice. Also a bee keeper may be interested and might possibly pay you for the bees.

Just buy some poison and spray it in at night.

Or, for more humorous results, swing a baseball bat at them. If you decide on the latter, please set up a camera before hand. Please.

You need the best of both worlds, my friend. Fire and a spray. As an ex-Boy Scout, I am fully trained in finding inventive ways to set things on fire.

Take a can of Raid and a Capri Sun straw. Fit the straw over the Raid nozzle and make sure it's stuck. You'll realize then that, instead of an aerosol, the Raid is sent from the can as a thin liquid stream. It is highly concentrated, goes a LOT farther, and thus is safer to accurately combat bees at a distance. Or it would be, if you weren't planning to add fire. As you are spraying the Raid, you will proceed to hold a lighter under the liquid stream issuing from the can and straw. Nothing is better than a poisonous flamethrower. Insurance should cover the shed.

Got any idiotic and arrogant 12-15 year olds in your neighborhood? Make it a dare or a bet. Entertainment and getting rid of the bees in one blow.

I once had a similar problem of a wasp nest pretty much near my front door, and we didn't find it until they were really becoming a problem. So, in the end, I put on a raincoat (one of those heavy, thick ones), and put a hose to those buggers. This year, wasps have made a nest in are backyard fence, yes, in it. Next week, I'm putting the hose in one end and watching them scoot out the other, again, while wearing the raincoat. I'm sorta allergic to bee stings, or at least react poorly to them.

My advice with the shed, bring a bbq in front of it, open the door, and smoke them out while cooking up something greasy. Bugs of all kinds hate smoke. The raincoat is optional. A spray works as well though, but you can't eat during the process (without worrying about getting that crap on your food).
