Wasps in October

I have noticed a number of very slow moving yellow jackets bumbling around my house this week. There are probably thirty wasp carcasses on the window sills.  Now, dear gardener, I am not much of a housekeeper but this particular problem is driving me nuts.  I did some research and discovered that I must have a yellow jacket nest in my walls! Because it turned cold, they found a "back door" in their nest and are coming into the warmth.  There's not much to be done but swat them; eventually they will all die. In the meantime, the carcass count continues to rise and I am a maniac with the fly swatter!
