Wasp spray after dark when it cools off.
Real easy.
Sneak attack when they are sleeping.

If the wasp spray won't reach, use a high pressure nozzle on your garden hose in the middle of the day, then RUN LIKE HELL.

If done right, there will be just a few wasps present, and it will shred the nest.

Open face nest, not yellowjackets. They'll still sting you, but they're not nearly as aggressive, territorial or smart. Set the ladder up so it's not under the nest and when you hit them with spray they'll drop straight to the ground.

This, just make sure you stand to the side when you spray. Watched my neighbor spray a nest in the same spot as yours, He stood directly under it and sprayed it. He ended up with eyes full of spray and a bunch of dying pissed off wasps falling on him and in his shirt. Laughed my ass off at him.

The Spectracide pro posted above is the one I've found that works best. Very quick knock down.

Reach pole closer to nest.

You gotta be quick with your taping and reaching.

Dad had a yellow jacket nest/hive/crib under his eve. He kept asking "how we" going to get rid of that?

I said "Howie", does he work here?"

Called local pest control. $90, bunch of powder stuff in there, all quiet a day or two later.

I'm "growing" a wasp nest under my carport. It is about the size of yours. I'm gonna see how big it will get. They did freak out the other evening when the grill grease caught on fire and smoked them out.

use a pressure washer with a low pressure soap nozzle. shoots a ton of soapy water , will reach that nest.  use dishwashing liquid, super fast kill

In my experience, sometimes the spray just gets the outside and doesn't really do anything to them except piss them off. Best thing to do is as follows:

1. Get a paintball gun
2. Blast the nest from a safe distance with 10 paintballs or so to punch a hole in it and compromise structural integrity
3. Run away for like 5 hours
4. Come back and spray those unholy bastards dead!

I've done:
tape can to pole
tape pole to another pole
make tape hinge with scrap of wood and light rope
aim at nest, pull string
miss, adjust, fire for effect
drop pole and run, was around the corner before anyone sporty arrived

problem solved.

Wait until night. Like around midnight. They are sleeping, literally.
Put up ladder so you will be spraying at an angle, not beneath the nest or into the wind. Be quiet. The spray cans aren't really good for 20 feet. Shake can. Remove cap. If you are using Raid, remove tab from spray tip. Go up ladder, try to get 10 feet away so the spray doesn't disperse as much. Be veh-wee quiet. Then when you are at a good position, spray as much of the nest's honeycomb holes as you can. Then, keep on spraying until the can is empty. Any wasps that come out will be on their death bed and won't be flying. Climb down ladder. Mission accomplished.

Standard practice for the dog-killing multimillionaires in GD is probably to improvise a flame thrower to destroy all insects, even harmless ones.

In reality, paper wasps are beneficial and won't sting unless you fuck with their nest, which all the morons here have told you to do. Unless you plan on having a barbecue in close proximity to the eave of your steep second-story roof, man the fuck up, wash the sand out of your vagina, and go on your merry fucking way. The wasps won't bother you and you'll eventually learn to cry yourself to sleep at night.

That looks like a good way to get stung.

Former exterminator here. 100's of nests obliterated, haven't been stung once. Well...as a kid, but I stepped on the bugger, so I kinda deserved it.
If you've got a nest, wait until dusk or just after, when it starts to cool down. Most of the wasps/hornets will be home then, so you can eradicate them effectively. There'll probably be a few stragglers that'll come back, but if you work quickly you'll get most (if not all) of them.

Your local hardware store has a spray foam wasp killer. Buy one. One of them should do 2-4 nests, depending on the size.
First thing you do is spray the exit hole. The foam will expand and block their exit. Any wasps trying to leave the nest will get covered in the poison and drop to the ground, writhing in their final moments of tortured life.

Now, put the nozzle on. It's that little red straw like you find on a can of WD40. Jab the nest with it like you're giving it an injection. Which you are. An injection of death.
Start spraying, and slowly pull the nozzle out of the nest. This'll make sure that the foam expands into each section of the nest, killing everything inside.
Once the nozzle is free of the nest, take it off and use the wide spray to kill off any stragglers. Go have a beer and celebrate a job well done. When your beer is done, go back outside and look at the genocide you've committed. The corpses of your victims will be laying on the battlefield, and you will stand victorious. Unleash your victory roar now, standing above the ruined bodies of those who would have encroached on your domain. You are truly a magnificent beast of battle. You have become death. The destroyer of worlds.

I am out of cans, but chase nests all year. I get the menards cheap brand spray. It really does shoot 20 ft, cause I need every bit of that. Spraying alone never works. Spray at night, then in the AM knock the nest down (long pole or hose). If you leave it, more wasps will appear and you have to do it all over again.

You know what. Just burn the house down and start fresh.

I had a black wasp ducker land right on my lip and sting me on Sunday when I was clearing out near one of the tree stands for archery season. Lip swelled up like I was a kardashian.

Experience was 0/10, would not do again.
