I would be reluctant to be mean to honey bees, but I can share my method of
getting wasp removal agents projected over a long distance.

I have an old fire extinguisher of the type that is pressurized with air.  It's
stainless steel, I think designed for the less esoteric fire fighting chemicals
(mainly H2O).  I keep it around for welding protection and winter car washing.

Properly pressurized from my compressor, it will shoot a stream over 30 feet.
