My old man would tape one of those house bombs to a pole and set it off and hold it at the entrance hole. Once they get hit with the poison they wouldn't sting you, hold it there until it is empty. He was an exterminator and did it all the time. Good luck

Flamethrower. Quick, efficient and effective. I tried pouring gas in some grass where those ground bees make their nest. Then threw a match in it. Didn't work as well as I thought it would. Bees were dead but small explosion threw dirt everywhere.
