A small generator would work.
If you run over a nest with a dozer, like I did, you have to leave the equipment or they will continue to sting you.
I've even known of people that had to bail off the equipment and leave it until it ran out of fuel.
I got rid of a nest by parking the riding mower over the hole for a bit while I was mowing the grass.
I prefer the quick, night time assault with a quart of gasoline. Guaranteed kill without firing it. Nesting in side of the house, sounds like the vacuum hose is the way to go.
