Bald faced hornets are really a wasp and related to the Yellow jacket a wasp also, NOT A BEE. They do have a beneficial value as long as they are not in and area where people work or play.
I don't know for sure how much I have made removing the buggers form peoples yards and such.
Easy to get rid of if you take the time to study the nest and use the right stuff at the right time.
First off they usually have a hole near the bottom of the nest for a entrance. Once it gets so dark you can just see that hole they should pretty much all be inside. spray in that entrance hole and work as close as you can to soak the nest totally.
Then use this product.
This is what I use and is all I will even consider using. I charge $250.00 to do the deed for those afraid to do it them selves. I want to do the job right the first time and no call backs.

A trespasser who was stupid also ruined the floor of my deer blind shooting this nest of dead wasps. All the workers die in the fall after a frost. The queen will hibernate some place in the winter. I find them a lot cutting winter fire wood dead Ash behind the bark.
This method and product works on yellow jackets also.
