Keepin beesy!!!!

Hi all, as we all know keeping busy really helps to maintain our sobriety and separate our addictive thoughts from rational ones, I've been kept busy of late trying my best to get to my car without being stung by my new lodgers the wasps, made a home in my cavity wall right above my back door so even taking out the dog is becoming a dash for safety, any ideas guys?

Still no? Call a professional Pest Remover?

It's not as bad here in the UK they aren't killer wasps or anything just normal native yellow jackets but they sting none the less.
I've been told to spray the nest at night time but I think I'll call an exterminator in the morning and just pay those guys. Knowing my luck they will swarm me.

Hi stoogy, sorry to hear about them bloody wasps! Maybe call your local council or pest controller to sort the problem out?

Or DIY, gear up and get some wasp killer powder/spray in there, but be prepared that might be a very dangerous idea without the right equipment, possible multiple stings!

Or just wait until winter until their all dead, but that's still quite a good few months away!

Once their all gone fill up any holes to prevent a repeat next year.

Edit, I've just seen your other post, I think that's the best idea letting the pest controllers deal with the problem.

Thanx buddy, the worst thing is I cannot see the nest they are getting in through the eaves of the house but they are not in the attic area, so they must be in the cavity wall which means it's harder too deal with myself, I bought some of that foam destroyer spray and will give that a go when it's dark out tonight, wish me well lol.

Me too, don't mind honey bees they just get on with it. I only plan to deal with the wasps because I know when it comes to late summer they will get very aggressive which would be hell in the garden.

The neighbours will think I'm a burglar with all that stuff on and call the police lol.

But seriously buddy, I will do my best to remain in one piece.
