Question:


Our insulated log home is 2 yrs old. We have a constant problem with wasps indoors even during winter. Our contractor assures us he has sealed chinked resealed and rechincked and caulked every crack in the structural logs that protrurde to the outside. We can never see the wasps get in. What else can we do?

Answer:

He's missing a hole or two somewhere. You may have to stuff fiberglass insulation into the holes first and then chink or caulk over it. If the window trim has spaces behind it, it will allow room for them to nest and find the tiniest of holes to get in.

Just bought a log sided home and hundreds of large (1-1/2 inch)black wasps are flying all over the outside. I can't see any nests, holes or sawdust and they don't seem to be chewing.Just annoying and I really don't want to be stung! Any suggestions? Thanks.
