After a quick look found someone who suggested: "My way of getting rid
of the yellow jackets cheap and easy is to find the hole in the ground
and place something on the ground just inches from it. Wait until an
hour after dark for them to all get in for the night. Next take an empty
coke bottle, fill it with gasoline, take a flashlight and something to
go over the hole like a piece wood board about 6 in to cover the hole,
then quickly put the neck of the bottle in the hole till empty, then
move it and cover the hole with the wood. Next AM move the board they
are all dead."

soil all around the nest...
Other people suggested getting a professional company in to get rid of
the bees, although this may turn out pretty expensive...
A cheaper way: "Do this at night right before it gets real dark!

fogger, duct tape the fogger can to a stick or pole (because the hornets
will crawl out and sting your hand if you hold it, have had a couple of
stings this way) click the continuous on the fogger can stick it in the
hole. The fog will go through every hole in your yard, wall etc. you can
see the fog of spray clouding out.
"I guarantee every yellow jacket in the hole will be dead, be it in a
wall or hole. If you think you need more go for it as you get 3 cans in
