Had the same problem...first time got exterminator cost me $250... worked... a few years later got them again...was laid off so I needed to go cheap... so I on a cool night I was able to find ground entrance to hive...put on long pants, sweatshirt...gloves scarf and my son's paintball mask and sprayed this stuff

A few days later I noticed no yellow jacket activity so I then ran the hose into the entrance and let the water run for a day on a light stream....hole filled up and I let it run for 24 hours to really get the are wet... then I disturbed the wet soil and tamped it down...have not seen a wasp hive yellow jacket in 5 years...

Will probably discover one now since I bragged of victory over an insect....
