If you feel adventurous, get an acetylene torch lighted near their nest at night.  Then rattle the nest and they all swarm out and fly through the torch.  Using just acetylene, no Oxygen, will give an incredibly bright light and they singe their wings as they fly through it.  Good way to get revenge if they got you during the day.

    That cold night you had should have been perfect.  40-45 F should be cold enough to make them pretty torpid.  Best time to do it would be just before sunrise, so they've had all night to cool.  Get some construction grade plastic trashbags if you're squeamish.

        Just had a lovely paper wasp nest in a corner apple tree discover me before 
        I found them. Nailed me good. My wife used to raise bees and says bees are 
        quiet at night and cool, just go out with a plastic bag and capture the 
        nest!    Lost a bit of my nerve to just jump in with a can of gasoline or 
        alcohol, or a bag.   Any body know the temp they definitely shut down at, or 
        other techniques of mass destruction?
        last night folk NE of here had 25F   we came in just over freezing
        the first apple trees I grafted are heading for the 6 foot mark, what a kick 
        this is     Mn. del
