Wasp nest in a Cupboard

This picture shows a mature Wasp nest in a cupboard in the bedroom of a bungalow with a loft converstion.

The Wasps had got into the cupboard via the tiled roof and were busy building for months before the householder discovered it, just imagine the shock as he opened the door!

In a nest of this size there could be several thousand Wasps so the safest way for us to deal with it was to take  the boxes and things off the shelf and cover the nest with a sturdy plastic bag and remove the whole nest (not something for the faint hearted!).

After removing the structure of the nest an insecticide spray was used to kill off any remaining Wasps and the cupboard could then be safely used again.
