It's as I feared - we have, it would seem, for the 2nd year running, a wasps nest in our roof space.
Yesterday we had a friend (who also happens to be a roofer) out to inspect our roof. After promising to inspect it for months, he had some good news for us, some not so good news and some, potentially, bad news.
(1) THE GOOD NEWS. He had eventually managed to inspect the roof.
(2) THE NOT SO GOOD NEWS. We have 1 missing roof tile, 6 broken roof tiles and several missing ridge tiles.
(3) THE POTENTIALLY BAD NEWS. We seem to have a wasps nest under the boards just outside our bedroom window which could result in them having to be taken down and then, with wasps hopefully gone, replaced. Needless to say I will be calling pest control first thing tomorrow morning.
I wouldn't mind as much but, as I said, we had a similar problem last year which Hubby, thankfully, dealt with as it didn't involve dismantling anything (merely filling in the hole they were getting in after the use of some chemical or other). Not normally afraid of such things, I leave that to my (naughty) little sister and her two children, I did, however, draw the line when I awoke to find one of the 'little darlings' crawling in my hair.
