by wasps..

Went into the shed to grab some tools earlier today only to look over the door and see a small little ball forming. Looked towards the back of the shed and seen 3 wasps. Closed the door and ran. I hate the bloody things, and some people I know do have bad reactions to wasp stings so I'm afraid to let them out the back until it's gone.

Can anybody recommend an exterminator? I need these things gone so I can arrange to remove the current shed (in ruins) and get a newer model without holes put in it's place Smile and also go back into the garden.

Don't panic. Just wait till dusk when the wasps have returned to the nest and all you have to do is squirt wasp-killing powder in the opening and that will be the end of the problem. You'll get the powder in any hardware shop. And for more long term solutions, if you really don't like wasps around, take a look at this site:

I sympathise....my grand-daughter has had a severe reaction to a wasp-sting, so I've become quite paranoid about them, unfortunately.

I wouldn't dare go near one, regardless of day or night Embarassed
Called an exterminator and he was here within 10 minutes to take the nest Smile

Ordered a Waspinator incase they decide to come back, shall report my findings sometime soon Very Happy
