:) It looks like an up side down swirl of gray cotton candy.

Sounds like bald faced hornet, which is actually not a hornet, but a
type of yellow jacket. You probably can get them to move by just
constantly spraying them away with water hose, as long as it is not a
large nest, but they might just move to a more undesirable place than
where they are, or they may move, never to be seen again. Proper
treatment would probably put you in harms way if you have to get on a
ladder, and bald faced hornets are a night flyers, so a night attack is
not guaranteeing safety..the pros will have the equipment to get rid of
them , but it bites paying $50+ for a guy to spend 30 seconds on the
job. Also, people definitely can have sensitivities to chemicals (not
just pesticides), but in 18 years, even when after I finish doing a
treatment on a home the home owner comes up with , "I'm very sensitive
to chemicals, will I be OK?", I have yet to have someone call back
stating they had problems.
