    Your local council should be able to help or you can look in the phone book for someone to come and deal with them

    i replied this somewhere else
    get a jar and add 1/4 jam, then top up to 1/2 with boiling water, mix it up and sit it the furthest you can away from where your kids play, works a dream they go because of the sweeet smell, get stuck by falling in then drown......., on the wasp nest if there is one, somewhere, i'd suggest getting someone into deal with it, we had a tiny one last year and my hubby knocked it of as im very allergic...... i wouldn't recomend it though lol
