Right where some pipes meet the roofline, there’s a gap, and yellow jackets or wasps have been coming in and setting up shop. Last summer, we found an occasional wasp in my daughter’s bedroom, which is right below this spot, but we assumed they were getting in through the window.
Nope. They found a spot where the pipes are either leaking or retaining moisture from the roof, so that they have a perfect water source throughout the hot summer months.
The insects are dormant at this time of year, but not for long. I have an exterminator arriving any minute to eliminate the nests (and make SURE there are no sleeping critters having a siesta up there), and then it’s time to get some roofers in here to plug up the holes.
