Q. I bought a house with two attic vents on the roof that are filled with hornets’ nests. They are empty but they block the vents. The vent base is on the roof and is screened, and the nest is between that screen and the vent above. I can’t move either. I’d have to cut the screen in order to take out the nest. What now? I might be able to get on the roof and open the vents, but I’m not 25 years old and stupid any more.
