Southampton-based Whelan Pest Prevention got rather a shock when they were called to treat a wasp’s nest in a local pub.

When Sean Whelan arrived it didn’t take him long to locate the wasp’s nest as it was in a corner of the pub’s loft – what he found was the biggest wasp”s nest he had ever seen. Built around a chimney stack the six foot by five foot nest was somewhat larger than a typical one – maybe one of the biggest in the UK.

“The wasps were buzzing all over the place. There were enough to kill someone if they hadn”t been wearing the right clothing,” said Sean.

“It was without doubt the biggest nest I have ever seen. It was an amazing sight – I couldn’t believe my eyes. I”ve never seen a nest that size,” exclaimed Sean.
