Pests have the town buzzing
STOCKPORT council has had more than 1,000 requests to deal with wasps so far this year.
The council had 1,072 requests to deal with the pests in 2014 – up 46 per cent on the 734 in 2013. The most, 284, were in Cheadle.
Stockport council will remove wasps from homes and gardens for a fee. Wasp nests can grow to several feet in size and be home to thousands of the pests.
