This is one of the biggest wasp nests we’ve ever seen. The call came in via the builders who were scheduled to remove the tiles and work on the roof but saw wasps going in under the tiles outside and decided to wait – and we bet they’re glad they did!
We think this nest would have been home to several thousand wasps, not something you’d want to come face to face with unless you had the appropriate protective clothing. This covered 12 courses of brick, so getting on for a meter high. Impressive.
