Wasps are useful to gardeners as they eat pests so the occasional wasp is to be welcomed! However,
if you discover a wasp’s nest on your plot or in your shed, the best answer is to leave it be as trying to
destroy the nest will only cause the wasps to become very angry. Wasp nests are annual structures and as
winter approaches the wasps will leave or die and the nest will disintigrate. It is possible to remove a wasp
nest but this must be done professionally to avoid multiple stings.
Currently the cost is around £70.00 - contact the council or firms such as Rentokil. The cost of removal is down
to the tenant.
