How Roofline Upgrades Can Expose Wasp Nests and the Vergo Solution

May 09, 2024

Home improvement projects like updating the roofline; replacing fascias, soffits, and guttering are not just about enhancing your home’s curb appeal or preventing water damage. These necessary renovations can sometimes uncover hidden and potentially dangerous surprises: wasp nests.

The Hidden Hazards of Home Renovations

The roofline of your home is an attractive site for wasps to build their nests, sheltered from the elements and predators. These nests often go unnoticed during the colder months or when they’re cleverly hidden out of sight. It is during renovations or replacements of fascias, soffits, and guttering that homeowners unexpectedly come face-to-face with these hidden tenants.

Why does this happen? The areas under the eaves, behind the fascia boards, and around the guttering provide perfect, undisturbed havens for wasps to establish colonies. When contractors start removing or replacing these parts of your home, they inadvertently disturb these nests, potentially endangering themselves and the homeowners.

The Risks Involved

Coming across a wasp nest is not just a minor inconvenience. Wasps, when threatened, can become aggressive and may attack in swarms. This poses significant risks, especially for individuals with allergies to wasp stings. Even without allergies, multiple stings can lead to serious health issues.
