Go get a couple cans of bee/bop! Wait until dark when they are all on the nest then spray the crap out of it. Should do the trick. Unless it's a paper wasp nest.
We go through a case of that stuff a year. Just found one at the lookout a couple weeks ago. We knew it was around but could never figure it out until one morning the other half just happened to be outside and looked up at the NE corner of the roof and there they were. It's in a spot we can't reach safely to fill the hole in not sure what we will do but it needs plugged before next season. We'll figure it out.
It's amazing how fast they can build a nest. Other half found 4 little ones the other day at the old place. Have found a couple at the new place now. A never ending battle.

Glad we haven't had to deal with that here. We do have hornets and wasp but haven't had any real bad.

Could be?
We've been told to look for El Nino~ this winter. Sure hope not. We really need a wet fall and a lot of snow.

Other half at the lookout yesterday looked up at the bottom floor NE corner and they were going in a tiny hole into the soffet area. They are always hunting for areas to make a nest over the winter.

I found a suggestion to use aerosol insulation expanding foam.  Spray it inside the nest and wait till it expands and solidifies then detach and burn in wheelbarrow.  I used that on a nest I had outside and it worked great. Ground nests you can pour a bucket of water that has an extremely excessive amount of dish soap added down the hole.
