Update on the wasp situation

Well, I decided to talk to my supervisor today about the wasps. She is a community development worker, and I thought, if anyone knows anything about someone in the community that can help me, then she will. So I told her about the wasps when she picked me up.

She said as soon as we got to the office she’d ring the maintenance man that works for cork city partnership. So she did. He said we needed a professional, that it would be dangerous to allow just anyone to go near the wasps, in case they attacked.

She decided after talking to the maintenance guy, to ring the community warden, since I told her I’d rang the city council and there was no response from them. She got through to the warden, and she told her the council weren’t going to do anything about it, that it wasn’t up to them to actually do anything.

So then we went to mr. google. We googled pest control. And we found a local pest control place. I rang my neighbour and she offered to split the cost with me, if I got them to come out, since the problem is in her house also. So I rang the pest control place, the girl I spoke to said that a technician would call me back, but that it would be early next week before they could call me back.

Luckily I am not going to be home for the weekend, so that’s fine with me if I have to wait until next week. Their website says they deal with wasps, so I am hopeful they can handle it.

In the meantime, my neighbour said she has been researching, and she found some recipes online for natural ways to deter the wasps. So tomorrow she is going to go get the ingredients for one of the recipes, and make it, and try that in the meantime to see if it does anything. I gave her permission to also spray my windows, just in case it does anything, but I’m very doubtful that it will.

So that’s where things stand right now. I’m hoping by next week this whole mess will be sorted. I just want rid of the pesky buggers.
