Wait until early morning or evening when bees are asleep.
Drill several small holes (1/8 inch in diameter) into the nest.
Using the bottle, puff the insecticide dust through the holes.
Once bees are dead, remove nest.
Seal nest entrance with caulk so new bees can't enter.
Remove honeycomb so new bees (or other bugs such as beetles) aren't attracted into the ceiling.
