You should definitely call out a pest control company to seek out the nest and get rid of it! I can't imagine anything worse than to be plagued by wasps you poor thing!

Sleeping under a mosquito net until the firebrigade can get here - needless to say, my wasps turned out not to be a priority to them, although with all the rain we are having at the mo, one would have thought that any fire would put itself out...

The thing is here in France the fire brigade also seem to deal with medical emergencies. Surely you should ring a pest control company instead and leave the pompiers to handle more serious things?

My French friends would never dream of contacting a private company - they all use the pompiers to help in these sorts of situations.

PS The intervention might not be free should they need to remove part of the roofing and/or use soem sort of sophisticated products.

PPS They will give you good advice and excellent service and you can make a genrous donation to your local fire station at Christmas time!
