Do you know where they are coming into the attic?

Put a ladder up to the hole, or if ground level find the entry point, leave during the day and as itís dusk puff wasp powder (get it from any DIY store, B&Q etc) - Done it loads of times and not been stung once and by the next day problem sorted.

Saves paying out £60 or so for a pest controller.

Blackbirds, Magpies, starlings etc all eat slugs. Chuck a load of them up there?

We did the plastic bag approach when we got shot of a nest at the back of the attic, but that time had the advantage that we had the roof off at the time so it was easily accessible to spray the fuck out of it when we removed it, at this stage the location is unknown.

I know how they get in and out and that will be closed once what I assume is a nest up there is removed!

Mate donít close the hole up until you blast it with the wasp powder.
They will take it to the nest and within 2 days max you wonít see them coming in and out of that hole👍

You can by some spray off of Amazon - we used it for a nest in the garden

search for wasp nest foam - I think its called "Zero In Ultra Power" - it worked surprisingly well, better than I expected tbh
