Yellow jackets are most active from August through October in Ohio but the population generally dies off and the nest is abandoned when the weather gets cold. Although there are some wasp control products on the market, if the nest is located away from high traffic areas, I'd recommend just waiting and doing nothing. Yellowjacket colonies die off naturally after the weather turns cold, and the paper carton disintegrates over the winter months.
