Wasp Nests In Eaves


House eaves are probably the most common place for wasps to nest and cause problems. When wasps are seen coming to and from the eaves of your home this would normally indicate that there is a nest there. In actual fact, the nest is usually within the structure and generally built in the soffit (box like section holding the gutters). Wasps will normally be entering through a gap between the soffit and the wall of the building.

Eaves nests can often be easily treated from within the roof. Often, the wasp nest will be down in the eaves at the edge of open loft area. If possible, do not turn on a loft light. Use a torch to locate the nest but turn the torch away from the nest as soon as you see it, otherwise wasps will come toward the light. You need to get the Wasp Killer Powder down into the eaves, this could be achieved using the Wasp Go Go Wasp Killer Powder but you may feel happier using a dust applicator to get the dust down into the nest such as, Polminor Bellows Duster, Gilmour Duster or Wasp Go Go BlunderDuster.

If you have no access or cannot see the nest in the roof, then you will need to approach it from outside. In this case you will require to use some kind of insect dust applicator to get the insect dust.
