<b>Bed of horror</b> Pest controller John Birkett, from Hampshire, UK, "couldn't believe it" when he saw a huge wasps' nest, measuring almost 1m wide and 30cm deep, on a client's bed. He believes the wasps came in though old eaves to make the nest, which housed around 5000 wasps, thousands more grubs and 500 young queens. The client asked him to salvage a quilt on the bed, Birkett told <i>The Independent</i>, and as he tried to pull the quilt out, “an explosion of wasps came out." As he pulled the nest apart, he discovered the insects had eaten away at the bed legs. "It was the most wonderful piece of art, to be honest with you," he said. The nest was in a spare room which was rarely used, the home's owner said.
