I'm currently having a few days off work so I have a to do list from my good lady, it's basically manly DIY stuff though also included cleaning the oven (I don't mind I get to play with dangerous chemicals)
It was when I was going out to my shed to get tools and fittings that a wasp flew out and did the old hover an inch from the eyeball trick. A quick investigation turned up the beginning of a nest.

Fortunately a quick attack with some raid saw off the queen and the nest was removed (pictures taken for proof) and I'll monitor the situation as the last thing I need in my shed are lodgers of the wasp variety.

If only politicians were as easy to deal with.

The buggers come form all directions, don't they?

I was told never to destroy an abandoned wasps' nest as they will then rebuild in the same place.
Don't know how true it is!

I had a couple of wasps' nests in one of the attics and called in the necessary folk to help. They were stuck right under the eaves and it took a few hours to smoke them out. Luckily the 'necessary folk' are friends so the bill wasn't too great. If it had been Rentokil I'm sure I'd have been looking at 3 figures.
