Wasp nightmare comes to life. Help me wake up.

Nightmare Filter: After arriving home Saturday night I noticed a bee/wasp in the house. I mentioned to my partner that I was worried about a nest. Sunday morning I awoke to my nightmare. Our small half bath right off the master bedroom was filled with up to 70 or so wasps. I think they were paper wasps. Help.

We bought some pretty serious wasp/hornet/yellow jacket spray and that killed all of the ones that were in the room yesterday. My partner sprayed into all the crevices where they could be coming from.
This morning there's a few more. I'm not sure where they are coming from/where the nest is but I'm pretty sure they are in the wall. Likely from some sort of hole in the exterior fascia or something. Any suggestions on how to deal with this so we don't have a repeat of this situation and such that we can eliminate the chances of them building another nest elsewhere in the house in the spring? I'd prefer to handle this ourselves, but if I have to call the exterminator I will - any idea what something like that might cost though?
