I am assuming that these have a nest in the bush. If this is the case, you can use a bag to cover the nest and then cut the nest off the plant. It is best to do this in the very early morning, when wasps are least active and wear long sleeves and long pants, just in case.

After the nest is removed from the plant, you can either fill the bag with wasp killer or WD-40. That will kill them in the bag.
