Yellow-Jackets Next to Hive. What to do?

Yellow-Jackets Next to Hive. What to do?

I recently discovered a nest of yellow-jackets in a small hole in the ground about six inches from the base of one of my hives.

They don't seem to be bothering the bees at the moment but I worry about robbing as we enter fall.

Is there a safe way to remove them? Because of the proximity to my hive I am hesitant to use chemicals.

I thought about plugging the hole or filling it with water but I am not confident that would completely remove them.

Or perhaps it is fine and they wont bother the healthy hive?

Thank you for any insight you can give.
