I noticed some dead bees in my basement and then saw one flying (almost dead). So, I took a walk around the house and noticed a crack and quarter sized hole in my foundation right where it meets the wood of the house. It's right behind my AC unit. So I sprayed them with wasp/hornet spray which killed any that contacted it. I tried to get as much in the hole as possible but I don't have the best angle. I went in the basement to investigate but didn't see anything. Next day, it was business as usual for them. I sprayed again trying to get as much spray in as I could. Today I check and business as usual again.

What should I do? I don't want to drive them into the house. I was thinking if either taking a straw and poking it into the hole and spraying through that to make sure it gets deeper but who knows which direction they go once in. Or I was thinking of using a fogger of some type. But I have a baby in the house and we can't leave for more than 1/2 day. Any ideas? Thanks.
