On Sunday we discovered some sort of hornets (yellow-jackets we think) building a nest on our bedroom window sill. We find this disturbing as it is "open window" season. We waited until the busy "bee" flew off (presumably in search of more construction material) and then Steve knocked the nest down with a mop handle. A few days later we noticed that there was a new nest being built there. So we armed ourselves with a can of bug spray and the handle and again knocked down the nest and sprayed the area.

Now today we have noticed that our window is again sporting a nest. Who knew that we had such prime location for hornet realty. We welcome your tips on how to permanently dislodge these unwelcome subleasers.

you need to be more persistent than the insect. knock the nest down and try putting a little bit of oil on the area where it keeps building. I don't know if it will work but it is worth a try.
