Ok, I’ve had enough of this. We’ve got a bumper crop of wasps hatching inside our house. Hardly a day goes by when I don’t deal with one or two. One of the little bastids even nailed me while I was lying in bed. Grrrrr…..
Most are of the Paper Wasp variety (with the dangling legs), although I think the one that nailed me was a Yellow Jacket.
Most seem pretty weak and lethargic, so I’m guessing they hatch and then make an inward journey through the framing, insulation and find openings around light fixtures or doors.
I don’t think I’m going to solve anything about this year’s batch, but I’d like to stop next year’s. Anyone know if it’s a case of going around the exterior envelope with foam, caulk and screening? I’m still putting up siding and trim, so the house is admittedly permeable at present.
