WASPS caused the biggest buzz for pest control experts in Herefordshire this year.
Herefordshire Council environmental teams dealt with 2,316 pest problems from mice, rats, wasps, bedbugs and birds in the last year according to a national survey by the British Pest Control Association.
But wasps caused the biggest problem with 1,378 call outs required, ranking 14th nationwide.
There were also a total of 439 calls over the period to alleviate problems with rats, 98 for mice and 15 to deal with bedbugs.
The figures rank Herefordshire as the 104th highest out of 314 English local authorities for pest control call-outs.
