we've been rather pre-occupied removing unwelcome visitors who
took up residence in our loft. . .
a particularly large hornets nest!
Unfortunately they didn't all succumb to the powders liberally applied
to their entry/exit point under the lead flashing on the roof
and were happily still buzzing away when Mark opened the hatch,
expecting them to be well dead!
Another dose had to be sprayed directly into the nest!
A week later it was safe to go up and remove the nest which
hung just over 2 feet long and was too wide to fit through
the loft hatch opening.
Such a shame to destroy the exquisitely built colony
but alas in this case, wrong time, wrong place. . .
(and I'm everso relieved they're gone!)
