Don't the wife is totally freaked out by it, and we are not telling the 9 year old what we have found, the wasps in the house upset her enough!

The good thing is that they never come back to the same nest which hopefully might put your wife's mind at ease? To be stung twice must be pretty unnerving though for her.

As long as it's empty I'd break it up.

It looks gruesome! What about two people trying to hold a sheet around it and hitting it off.

I'm removing it with my Father in Law and I am not beating it off in front of him  Wink! Seriously though what I think I will do is take a spade up with us and just prise it away from the wall/roof, the issue is getting it through the hatch!

Yeah it hasn't been great, albeit strangely its actually been a bit of a relief in some ways as she had never been stung before (at 40 which was quite some going) and as she can be quite allergic to things she had always worried about anaphylactic shock, so at least it has proven she doesn't have that!

As long as it's empty I'd break it up.

I suspect it will come down to that, albeit I may ask him to do the breaking. Not sure yet, when I was up there there were a couple of the little pricks still loitering about, very very dopey and easily dispatched by the spray) so may be worth leaving a week or two till it gets even colder, if the wife will tolerate it knowing its there now!

It won’t be empty. They will be inside albeit a little less active due to the Winter months.
You will be able to get close to it mind.
Find the entrance hole and puff lots of wasp killer inside.

Wait until a cold snap would be my advice then you will be fine to get rid of it.

Had wasps flying around my head only yesterday with a nest in our roof.
Get loads round here and always get rid of them for the neighbours as well.

Now rats are another battle 😀

Don't think that will be an option, its definitely going to be a 2 person job and the other person in the house will be the wife and I guarantee that she won't be coming into the attic during the event.

I got close enough to it yesterday to spray it with the killer stuff, couldn't see an obvious entrance, but did spray all the way round its edges with the stuff plus give its face a pretty liberal coating.

We had our first proper frost up here this morning so looks like its finally getting colder, FiL coming tomorrow so we can assess the situation and agree a plan of attack.

Thankfully we haven't had rats (touch wood), had issues in the past with Badgers and Stoats shitting on the lawn though.

She can wait in the garden for the inevitable of you running into the nearest river/lake chased by a swarm of angry wasps.

I had a wasp nest last summer by my bedroom window of my flat, I got stung about 4 times by the fuckers. In the end I used some powder near the mouth of the nest to kill them off.

I have used a hoover to suck the fuckers up and then kill the nest before on a previous nest some years ago in a different property

Rather have a wasp nest to deal with than rats. Been there, done that, trapped a dozen.
