- Wasp nest in attic – can I deal with myself?

A can of wd40, a cigarette lighter and a video camera is the proper equipment for dealing with such things.
this sounds like the way forward to me. make sure your WD40 can has one of the wee straws attached to give you some distance from the wasps! 😆Posted 3 years ago
I’m going to wait until all the little buggers are back in there tonight and then they’re getting the foam spray stuff. Can’t leave them as we are moving house in a week or so and I need to clear our stuff out of that loft space.

Wait until they are asleep. Gentle music, whales singing or a football match may help. Encase it in a plastic bag and yank it of the wall. I suggest gloves, hat, goggles for full body coverage. Spray chemicals at any escapees. That a tiny little thing.Posted 3 years ago
When I moved into my house I peered into the unlit attic and wondered why there was a spare hot water tank in there. It was genuinely that big.When we had the roof done a few years ago we shovelled it out into several wheel barrows. Luckily it was dead.
Just done the biz. Got dressed up like some horrible urban guerrilla crossed with man at C&A and gave it a gratuitously generous coating of the killer shaving foam. Didn’t see a single wasp whilst doing it, so I guess they were all inside asleep.
I’ll have a check in the morning and get rid.Posted 3 years ago
