    Are they carpenter bees? They may be living up inside the eaves. You will need to watch where they are going. When you see the openings in the holes they are going into; spray into the hole with WD40. It works for me everytime; and they will not go back up in there.

    Get the spray insecticide, and wait til it almost dark, empty the can into the nest focusing on the hole as your target. Wait a day or two to see if there are more bees returning to the nest. Then knock it down, and I think its carpenter bees cause honeybees don't do this unless you had a swarm. Make a carpenter bee trap.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RHtEOQj4yo

    we had that problem with the boring bumble bees. We sprayed our own insect disinfectant shots into the holes and where they were nesting. They did not return
  • Find a local bee keeper, most of the time they will come and remove the hive. Then you can get the area cleaned well so they hopefully do not return.

    Oh my...wasps are extremely agressive at their nest site...I get them nesting in the ground on our property in the fall...some nest in the ground some in trees or house eaves...I have used spray from home depot for hornets and wasps with success the special container is very tall and sprays about 15 feet out so you can stand far back while you spray them....but be prepared to RUN FAST away after you hit the nest as they will try to come after you to defend the nest....I am surprised the pro exterminator did not succeed in eliminating this problem....

    What spray did you use from Home Depot? Because I bought all the different kinds they had at my local Home Depot
