Anyone ever done a cutout of a log home?

    I have a cutout to do tomorrow on a log home. I'm just wondering if anyone has done one on a log home before. The bees are entering where the facade is near the roof. I think they are just under the facade, but I don't have the foggiest idea how the facade attaches to the home and any insight you can give me would be helpful.

    pictures would be helpful, most log homes I have seen, don't really have a facade, unless is a add on. without seeing it can't really intelligently comment on it good luck with the cut out---why not a trap-out?

    Many log home manufacturers only provide logs for 8 foot walls, the area above the walls at the gable ends of the house are probably what he's talking about. This is usually verticle wood (usually cedar) siding. If this is where the colony is-it won't be too much trouble. If you have to start cutting the actual logs, I would do as Barry suggests-trap out.
