Installed the roof cap yesterday. Now on to the soffits. I wish that I'd installed the soffits last year. I discovered this while I was using the hammer drill to screw on the roof cap, when all of the wasps started coming out! I then had to be careful about spraying, as my honeybee hives are about 75 feet outside of my fence.

Looks nice, Paul. I guess the wasps thought you built that lovely home just for them!

Ughh...unintended consequences. The bees are really prolific here this year. It's Probably due to the cold weather lasting so long. The wasps are controllable...it's the hornet and yellow jacket nests that'll get ya.

FYI--Amazon has Caputo Tipo 00 qty 10 for 33.11 including shipping for prime members. For those who use alot of it, there's a 55lb bag that equates to 31.03 for 10 bags, even though you pay for shipping.

I use Dawn dishwashing detergent and a kid's super soaker. Any dishwashing detergent would probably work, but that is what was recomended to me............and I know that it works.
Here is a video of someone doing it with a garden sprayer.

It does not carry with the wind like pesticides. So, unless you aim directly at your bees, they should be ok .
