In order to exterminate the wasps you need to purchase an aerosol wasp killer from you closest hardware store. Some produce a foam that can be sprayed from quite a distance at the nest keeping you a safe distance away. When spraying, focus the spray at the entrance to the nest while spraying the whole nest. Read all instructions on the wasp killing spray to make sure you are safe in the use of the product and use it the correct way.
Once the nest has been sprayed, leave it alone until the following day where you should observe the nest for activity. If the wasps have all been killed and there is no activity, the nest can then be removed and thrown away. You may even like to consider leaving the nest were it is as wasps are very territorial and if new wasps come along and see the nest, they may avoid nesting near by.
