Wow, John, I had never heard of yellow jackets doing that kind of damage to solid wood! Amazing, but not good! I've heard that bees and hornets need to be sprayed directly on the insect or the spray does not work. I don't think they have a fogger that works for them, but if they do, then that might work. I would NOT be waiting for them to go dormant in the wintertime. As JW said, they will get into your house since they have already gotten through a whole wall, and cause problems this winter inside, I would fear. If you can find the nest, then get some high powered hornet and wasp spray and spray them directly. The reason you found some that were lethargic is because they got wounded, but not killed, and you want them DEAD.
Addy, you have totally blown my theory that once a heron comes and gets caught in the fishing line or whatever you have up, they will not return. I guess this could be another heron, but seems coincidental that it came back within a day or two. Darn! I still don't have anything up to keep them away. My only defense is my farm pond, which is farther from the house and noise, and has LOTS of shallow water for them to fish in. I'm hoping they will keep to that instead of coming to fish out my beauties.
