Have you ever heard of bug b gone?

Well they make something called BuG-B-Gone-Max and it will kill anything even you if your not careful just kidding. Seriously this stuff is nasty and will leave a strong residue that lasts a long time after.

I'm not sure if it would stain the untreated wood so you might want to try a spot check.

Only down side is that your tennis game skills may drop off

Good luck with that, I just had a similar problem. $7.95 and a little cauking and I was done with them in 48 hours.

The stuff is called Ortho Bug-B-Gon-Max to be exact.

It will shoot a spray about 10 feet so you don't need to be that close to them when you attack. I'm sure you are aware that bee's will track you by fallowing your breath and when you use this stuff you don't want to be breathing anyway.

I'm stuck using a badminton racquet, too.

Fun, but not as permanent.

I agree Demon WP is good. Drione dust in the holes is another option.

I thought I'd follow up with an update on how this treatment is doing. Well, so far, it's been working great. Even the mud wasps don't like to build nests on our house anymore. It took a few treatments (spaced weekly) before the bees really stopped coming by. For the rest of the summer, the crew just came by every other month. Spring is just beginning here in VA so we'll see what happens when the days really start to heat up and the little @#%$#rs try to come back.

Now I just need to find a good painter that can go up there and plug up those holes and re-stain my roof. (I'd normally do it myself, but I'm really not good with heights.)

They are synthetic Pyrethrins that will last a couple months at least

I have used them for years with great results, also keeps spiders down
You can get this stuff in a concentrate, on amazon. I bought some a while back. It kills just about any bug, based on the directions.
