A perimeter treatment with a residual pesticide at the soffit and fascia area will get most of them. Typically they don't nest in structures but usually in trees and shrubs in paper cone type nests. Brown wasps and yellow jackets do nest in structures and home a lot.

Safest is wait for a cool morning, early, and get them in the nest and too cold to fly. Step ladder with Raid wasp and hornet, as the residual kills and I think they have ether in the mix so it stuns them, so they do not have the opportunity to get mad and sting.

Contact killer will kill the adults in the nest. Liquid residual will take care of the returning foragers.

Nasty bastiges, be careful.
