Okay, it's not actually a pet. :cwm25:

We just discovered that we have a wasps nest in our storage box by the back garden. :grosyeux:We regularly have wasps here but we didn't know it's found a home in our home! :cwm25:

Those pest control guys will kill them all in about 5 mins..
100 pounds please! Talk about being stung!
Not sure if the council will still deal with them?
One way or another though...They gotta go.

Not easy to make friendly as pets Rayna. But a dollop of jam helps :xxgrinning--00xx3:

Certainly looks like a wasps next, as opposed to a honey bee's nest. Contact your local council and should sent someone out to get rid of it for a small fee. Unless it's not bothering you of course :smile:

Well, Keith just sprayed some "Combat Fly & Wasp Killer" and he said it's already dying. Poor little things..:cwm25:

A one or two (or maybe a few) wasps and bees really don't bother me coz they don't usually go near me, but a nest?!?!?! I mean that will be loads! :omg: And I always go on that storage box because our recycling bin for boxes & cardboard is there. :cwm24:

I don't suppose kids are allowed to blow them up with a load of fireworks now...as we used to do. :cwm25:

Get onto the council and ask for pest control, depending on your local council they may charge or not (think I paid about 40 last year). They'll want to make sure that they are wasps and not honey bee's though, as honey bee's are protected.

:sorry-2:, Rayna ... what Keith has done might act as a short-term measure. But for SAFETY's sake I would strongly advise calling in Pest Control :icon_lol: whose number can usually be found in 'Yellow Pages'.

Keith has managed to remove the nest now. A couple of wasps were going back to the nest so he removed it. :icon_lol:

Oh, and he said it's definitely wasps nest. :xxgrinning--00xx3:

We can't do that, we store the generator there and we got some petrol (I think) there too..hahahahaha :icon_lol:

Sometime you just get them angry if you spray them. A few years ago some wasps thought they would start a nest in a bird box I put up in the garden. I covered the hole up with cardboard, all they did was eat through it. :yikes:

Cost me 30 to get pest control out after that.

Ant powder is the best insecticide to use just puff it into the opening of the nest or where the wasps are going in to a gap. Do it at night so they are less active. Nests at this time of the year are getting bigger daily. A football size nest can have anything from 500 to 2000 wasps in it, depending of the species of wasp.
