Buy dish soap, any dish soap will do. I prefer Dawn!
Here is a link for coupons for Dawn.
Get a large cup of water, one quart should be enough.
Mix about four tablespoons of dish washing soap with the water. This will be the solution to remove the wasps. Mix it up.
Find a container for the solution. Sprayers come in all forms shapes and colors. You can find them at Home Depot or Lowes.
My favorite however is my son's water soaker :-) Great aim!
Make sure you are in a safe distance from the nest, about 10 to 20 feet. Aim, and soak the nest thoroughly. Make sure you can get away quickly. The solution will enter the wasps breath way and take their oxygen away. They are not able to breath anymore, drop, and will die. Wait a while and make sure they are dead and then knock the empty nest down, before remaining wasps, which were out on a field trip, return. Voila!
