update

i have been playing holy hell with our council

the reason why the nasties nested in the loft in the first place was because work was carried out by the council updating the heating system and they install an extractor in the roof...they cut a roof tile  to fit the extractor ...the cut they made in the roof tile was too big and  left   a gaping hole...
i may as well have put a 'to let' sign on it for birds bats and wasps and any  homeless critter that wanted to squat. :cheergirl:

it is costing me 60  to get rid of the wasps then i need the hole blocking ..and i have left lots (and i mean lots ) of messages to ring me back  and to come see the roof for my rent officer who deals with all things related to my home.... she hasnt got back
 :thud:

i have just about run out of patience..  lol am ready to throttle someone.

I dislike Wasps too Teejay. Gllad you're getting them removed...nasty little critters. I had a nest at the top of a very tall tree which was next to my rotary line. It was a battle trying to hang washing out without getting stung.

OH my gosh!  I have never had a "wasp" experience in my life!  Not sure that I've actually ever seen one!  I've seen them in movies and they are such vicious little critters!  I wouldn't want to encounter one.  I hope you get rid of them soon!!!   Maybe leave some chocolate around and make friends with them, then when they're not looking... BAM!  Hit 'em with a fly swatter!

I feel badly for you having to put up with these little buggers!!

We had them in a garden house and had to get help to get them out. Took a day or so, then they were dead! Period!
Good luck, Teejay!

Oh man....I do hope you can get this problem resolved quickly.  Those things are lethal for sure!  Some years ago my husband opened a shed door on our property that hadn't been used in some time and they flew out at him.  He was younger then and outran most of them but had enough bites that we took him to the ER for treatment. Now he would not be so lucky.  Hope you don't have to stay away long .if at all.  It's not the same without you. :yes03:

i love bees i can handle them without gloves and have no fear of them...wasps i hate and kill on sight

it looks like it may be a big wasp nest too the amount of to-ing and fro-ing the little nasties are doing
i live in a bungalow so the roof/loft is directly over every room...there is a bathroom under the hive and we keep getting half dead wasps on the bathroom floor ..i hate going in there now i refuse to shower in case one falls on me..lol i know i am such a baby but i HATE them

am calling the rat man first thing tomorrow...our council is supposed to deal with this stuff so if i am not around its because i am de-wasping.
