A trap out is frustrating if there are multiple entrances--they can chew through a lot of stuff to get back to the brood nest. One inch holes are pretty easy to repair, so you might try punching in a few more...
I actually made a 1 square foot hole.... Learned alot of valuable lessons today.... First is to use a hole saw on a drill to check before cutting. Thinking about getting a scope as well.A trap out is frustrating if there are multiple entrances--they can chew through a lot of stuff to get back to the brood nest.

Charge by the hour?
If the distance to travel was not too great, I would seriously consider a trapout. It could save the homeowner some damage to their house.When it gets to a point such as this, what do you do?
The room adjacent to the soffit is a FROG and the drywall for the ceiling is attached to the joists that hold the roof. The spaces are insulated., although there is a run of about 3-4 feet where there is no insulation. There is an attic storage area underneath that.... I was able to look in there and didn't see anything.Is it possible they are running under the roof? There seems to be lots of possibilities.
I'll try that. I tried listening through the masonite siding, but couldn't hear anything.....My guess is they are in that wall behind that fascia board. You may be able to hear them in the wall from the inside, through the sheet rock.
Best way to know for sure if there is a hive in there, now to find out where :scratch:You should always look for pollen going in. No pollen, no brood nest.
