Leicester pest control officers see rise in wasp nests
Pest control officers said there had been a "massive" rise in wasp nests in Leicester.
Jon Rudbach, from Leicester City Council, said the team had already surpassed the total number of nests they treated last year and the peak period, August and early September, was not over.
Since January, they have treated more than 635 wasp nests - in 2010 they dealt with about 605 in 12 months.
Eamonn Hayes, pest control technician, said they were being called out to about 20 nests daily.
He believes the increase in wasp nests in the city was because of the recent hot weather.
