That sounds like a very large nest! I would suggest a couple of those spray cans of hornet & wasp killer... & use them at night when they are mostly inactive & are mostly in the nest. Good Luck!

paint any yellow on you feeder red they will not go to it then

This gets my vote. I've got a hornets nest, too. It's about 6 feet off the ground, and about 12 feet from the gate to the chicken pen. I was walking under it all summer, walking down the fence line, and just noticed it a couple weeks ago. They haven't been aggressive at all, so they get to stay until winter freezes the nest. Then we'll take it down. Carefully, because I'm allergic.

Seems like the only problem they are causing you is interfering witht the feeders, so I'd disguise them, as Stumpy said. Let them stick around and eat bugs.

Meg :)
