Professionally - Pest Control/Exterminating is your Search the List category if not up to this yourself or allergic to stings or such.

DIY - get a shovel or small bucket of gravel or dirt and put handy, then spray down the hole area with a jet spray hornet and wasp killer - shoots about 20 feet so you can stand back a ways. Give it a good 3-5 second shot into the area they came from and hoepfully down into the hole too - works best at night or early morning when it is cold and they are not active and flying around. Then (without walking in the sprayed area) get a bit closer as soon as they settle down (takes a minute or so) and shoot another blast directly into the hole, then cover with the dirt to seal the poison in so it spreads through the underground nest. And keep eye open for a back door - many build two entrances into the nest.

May take a follow-up spraying the next day to get the ones who were out of the nest at the time (some scouts stay out at night if they roamed too far from the nest) so they will be hovering around the entrance the next day.

Be sure to keep that area off-limits for pets/kids for a day or so, then hose down thoroughly before letting them into the general area.
