API: Can't delete host

I am able to grab a list of hosts, deactivate a host but cannot delete a host no matter what I try.

curl -X DELETE -u “{access_key}:{secret_key}” “http://x.x.x.x/v2-beta/projects/1a5/hosts/1h1

{“id”:“3c6b1e66-5307-4b6a-9353-c1118823a5c0”,“type”:“error”,“links”:{},“actions”:{},“status”:405,“code”:“Method not allowed”,“message”:“Method not allowed”,“detail”:null,“baseType”:“error”}

it appears I was performing the delete too quickly after deactivating

Yes, almost all actions are asynchronous and take some time to complete.
