  • A different nest

    I found this wonderful construction, about the size of a melon, about 20 feet up in the back garden over the weekend ....


    Handheld from the ground - 70-300 @ 300mm, f7.1, 1/200, iso 640 (auto)

      I also found one but unfortunately it is in the attic.

      Any advice welcome.

        I had one in the garage roof space.

        Make sure you have minimal skin exposure

        I sprayed the inlet with Nuvantop a cat flea killer, then used a wet/dry vacuum cleaner.

        Just poked it through the side and kept sucking until I could not see any more wasps. Good squirt of wasp killer up the nozzle sealed the nozzle with a plastic bag. Next day repeated the squirting, then emptied the contents into a strong bin-liner

        The combs with grubs were appreciated by a fisherman friend

        Aldi had a wasp nest destroyer foam in stock last week, it claimed to be effective from 3m.
