An English woman had no idea her home was so popular among wasps until she opened the door to her guest room and found thousands of the insects inside. Pest-control expert John Birkett said that the bugs completely covered the bed and went deep inside the mattress at the home in Winchester. The exterminator said he had to wear his full protective gear to tackle the job which included two hours of spraying.
“In 45 years, I have never seen anything like it,” he said. “At one stage there must have been 2,000 wasps buzzing around me. If someone had gone in to the room and not known what it was, it would have been pretty serious.” The owner lives alone and had not been in the room for months, the newspaper reports. “I thought ‘what a shame, ‘ but I had a job to do and the client was terrified,” Birkett told the newspaper. “Afterwards, the entire room was filled with dead wasps. It was like the apocalypse.”
