I just moved to a new home, there was a tree once where this nest is. There is a hole and 2 smaller holes. They are deep. There are numerous yellow jackets going in and out of the large hole, they are aggressive and I want to keep my pets safe. I have covered the holes but am afraid of using gas or any substance that might hurt both the lawn and the animals. I know there are several remedies out there, just wanted to get an opinion of what the safest thing to do would be. Thanks!

The Wasp Bomb in the garden dept works just fine. It sends out a thick spray from a fairly long distance so you don't have to be very close to the nest. However, I highly recommend spraying around dusk (not during the day when they are active). Ground wasps love old rotten tree stumps, unfortunately. The spray product will not harm the lawn (you are spraying in a hole) and pets leave it alone; they don't like the smell.
