Pest Control Call-Outs For Wasps Jump By 83% This Year

Over a quarter of those callouts came in Mayo.

Pest control company Rentokil has seen the number of callouts for wasps increase by 83% this year.

Over a quarter of those callouts came in County Mayo, with over 10% coming in both of Galway and Sligo.

It's urging the public to treat the flying pests with caution because the Autumn is when they're at their most aggressive.
