We tried to kill them off at first...and we killed thousands, but thy just kept coming, so we left them alone during summer knowing they will eventually die as winter approached.

That's exactly what happened and now it's time to remove the nest and make sure they never return.

My first sight of the nest after removing the plasterboard. It's bigger than I thought.

A beauty!

The covering is a crispy paper-like shroud.

The queen is in there somewhere. Sorry, darlin' you have to go!

All done, but I'll need to thoroughly clean the area and disinfect it to make absolutely certain there is no remnants of the colony. I enjoyed the experience, but I don't want to be doing this again next year.
