Paper Wasps in the House
This isn't really a disaster but it is annoying and worrying. Two years ago I moved into my new house in February. In early to late March I had a small invasion of paper wasps in the south-facing bedroom, maybe 12 in all. All those I found were not flying much at all but pretty much limping around or near dying--that is, not too frightening and easy to dispose of. Still, it drove me nuts. The exterminator sprayed the outside of the house and around the window frame, and he told me to plug up all the interior holes I could such as any tiny holes or gaps around the windows and where the baseboard met the floors. I worked like crazy doing all this until everything was completely plugged up. So today, one year later, there is another wasp! I have no idea where they are coming from or how they are getting in, but I'm now scared of another invasion. Does anyone have any clue how they get into a house that seems to be completely airtight--or as much as humanly possible?
