Things that irritate me

In your roof space, you say...Fire, you say.

Hhmmm. I’d try to stun the buggers first with alcohol gel, that should get them a bit drunk and slow...
Then throw some kiln dried sand in. Once the bastards are well pissed they'll all kill each other throwing rocks

Listen up: if you can't see wasps, and you can't hear wasps, you haven't got wasps. If so, it's an old nest. Wasps never make a nest in the same place twice, so just leave it.

P.S. If there are wasps, then just fill the nest with expanding foam.

Do I have to rub the gel on each wasp or not? Surely it would be quicker to pour vodka on the nest then burn it? They’d get drunk and burnt.

It’s a new nest this year. I last went into the loft around the end of May and didn’t see it then. I look around each time I go in.
Do wasps come out in cold weather? I haven’t seen any flying insects today and it’s been a lot colder, around 14° C. I bravely got out the loft as quick as I could when I saw it. The loft is above the garage so the area isn’t heated at all and is on a North side wall so will be quite cold.

I‘m not stupid enough to hit the thing with a stick. I’ll destroy it with fire. That way I can stand off from it.

Give it a good soak with a watering can . Thing should just fall apart .

Back at the old place long before I met Mrs Londo I had a wasps nest between the joists in the loft . As it was enlarged they ate through the plasterboard and it was only the ceiling paper keeping them out the room below .
Silly cow I was living with at the time on hearing some buzzing coming from the ceiling decided in her wisdom to give the ceiling a few good taps with a broom handle .
Then wondered why all these wasps dropped down to discuss the situation with her .
How I laughed when she phoned me to tell me all about her stings

Well the stripey bastards have gone today. They were still hiding in the nest when chemical warfare was set upon them. Some buzzed around but wasp novichock got them. Glad I didn't do it. My days of NBC are well over.

Chemicals is the way to go with the little bastards. I had a 2 foot plus diameter nest in the loft. It took 3 cans of death foam to coat it before I stuck an Ikea storage box under it and cut it loose. Duly burned on the BBQ after a dousing in kerosene. I vacuumed up all of the corpses in the loft and removed all trace of the nest, spraying the site with bleach to get rid of the smell in case more wasps get the idea to move in. My roof man sealed the holes in the eaves and have had none since.

Further to my post above on receiving the phone call and laughing myself silly . I raided the works store . Got myself a protective coverall , goggles , gloves A gallon of some insect killer called Pybuthrin and a pressure spray bottle .
That evening on suiting up in my home made NBC ppe . I entered the loft and made my way to the nest . Gave it a squirt from the bottle and screamed like a girl as the whole nest just boiled over with wasps .I kept on spraying until the sprayer was empty and retreated .
Checked out the nest the next day and all were dead .
A few weeks later I also removed from my place the silly cow who was thick as mince . Just couldn't take any more of her stupidity even if she did have a nice pair of tits .
She turned up again about ten years later (just for a few days) but that's another story ;)

I bet you never thought that I’d ask that

Fire off a bug bomb in the loft space and immediately hit the nest with a shovel, vacating and shutting the door tout suite.

Are you female and just don't fucking listen?

Unfortunately no pics of tits or any of her at all .
She wasn't a bad looker , not willowy bit not a porker just stupid as feck and I could take no more .
I did get her a job as a postwoman when she was with me . Most of my mates at the time were postmen or worked for the post office so easy to get her in .
All that walking must have done her good as when we met up again years later she was fit in more ways than one .
Even more stupid than before though :(

I believe that someone* has form for wearing a unicorn costume to a funeral**

* - Take a bow that man

Sorry, what did you say?
Your first comment was just hit the thing with a shovel. There is a load of stuff between the nest and the loft hatch that it’s like doing an obstacle course to get out. Decides you’d probably hear me squeal like a girl even where you are if I got stung.

Well put it like this, she’s the only person who’s put her finger up me arse and subsequently reassured me that all was in order and at my age, that’s as good as it gets.
I had nice lady doctor check my arse as well. She was concerned that I might be embarrassed and did I want a chaperone...
I replied that after 27 years in the army it would probably take more than that to embarrass me... :)

She referred me to a specialist (another lady doctor) who was also very nice...

I have to say however that they were both a damn sight more gentle than the doctor who subsequently shoved a camera up my backside...

Should've gone private mate. Mine was almost a pleasant experience (cue ribaldry) ;)

I had that done, twice. It wasn’t so much the camera that caused discomfort, it was more the boom mic & tripod as they pulled it out.

I know it's a smooth and greased probe but it felt like a GoPro on a selfy stick. Didn't feel the polyps getting ripped out even though I saw it on the telly. Had it done in the morning and back at work after lunch.
