West Oxon District Council’s pest control service has had a very busy summer dealing with a sharp rise in callouts to treat wasps’ nests.

Pest control officer Sandro Silvestri, pictured, has been treating as many as 22 nests a day.

He said, “Nests can get very big and I have treated some over a metre wide, holding thousands and thousands of wasps.”
