Waspss are swarming all over Britain this summer – and warm weather and the recession have been blamed.

Calls to pest control firms have soared by more than 230 percent after the hot start to last month caused wasp populations to swell. Experts warn the problem is likely to get worse as the warm weather is predicted to continue this month.
