A quick update on the advice I received a couple of weeks ago on how to harvest a wasp's nest.

Unfortunately I couldn't get any Carbon TetraChloride (CTC) from our chemists so I followed a combination of advice.
Late on evening one, I cleared a few braches away to get good access. Evening two I shot half a dozen good puffs of Nippon into the entrance hole and ran, boy did they get miffed!!! I then left it until no wasps were seen going in and out (two days), then cut it down into a bin liner and left it over night.
Now I have some nice grubs and nest sections in the freezer.

Thanks a lot for the advice folks.
