The nests are actually pretty fragile... Very often, they break apart on their own, especially if they're in the open. And no, they won't take over an old nest, at least I've never seen nor heard of it. I guess it's possible that other wasps (BFHs are actually wasps) might tear it apart for nests of their own, but I haven't seen that either.

Just knock it down after the first hard freeze. They'll all be gone by then. Move the branch it's attached to, or poke it with a long stick to be sure, I always do, even though I KNOW there's nothing in there. Better safe than sorry, if you know what I mean....
