    I was looking out the window this morning and to my suprise I noticed a BB sitting on one of my houses. After waiting until he fluttered off I went to check the box. To my dismay when I opened it a red wasp flew out and I observed a single cone nest on the upper side wall. I removed it and scraped off any Remanence. Will he be back or since he flew out and I removed the nest it won’t be back? Just curious,
    Thank you.

    I have no idea if he will be back but he probably will check it out again if he’s interested. You need to rub some soap (something like Ivory) on the ceiling and about one inch down the sides to prevent wasps from building again.

    Interesting remedy, I’ll give it a try, thank you.

    I could have said use the bar soap not the liquid. This is standard practice and it works very well if applied properly.
