So we live on several acres, and so, apparently, do a number of wasps. At the end of last summer, we successfully deterred them from building nests under our low eaves by whacking the hell out of any nest they started to build.
“We’ll show them,” they decided, and started building their nests up higher. We have a peaked second floor roof that’s waaaaaaaaay off the ground, much higher than we can reach with an extension pole or roof rake. There’s part of a nest from last year in two spots that we can’t reach.
Luckily, winter came, so we were given a reprieve.
Now it’s close to spring, and we’re seeing wasps again. Is there anything we can do in the two spots they seem to like to build their nests to make it less hospitable? Big spikes? Anti-wasp spray? Wasp-eating snakes? Help!
