Every fall we get a huge invasion of cluster flies & yellow jackets - I'm talking hundreds of them! I have caulked around every log. I think they are crawling between the tongue and groove wood & metal on the eve of the house and then making their way into the house. Is there anything I can spray on the t & g on the outside to seal it? I think I will need to hire someone to put some insulation under the metal fachia trim that goes on the end of the t & g where the eve ends. Any ideas on this? Live in NW Oregon.

First you need to hire a professional exterminator to look at the problem.  My experience is that they come in around or through the windows.  Make sure all of the seals are good and that they are installed properly.
