    Renting with situation 17th Jun 17 at 1:13 PM
    My son has recently rented a property via a housing association. He lives there with his partner and now new born baby.


    They have now been confronted with two bees nests (not honey bees). Both at the front of the property, one to the left and one to the right. Entering the house is a bit of a duck and dive and even harder getting the new born in as well... They cannot open either front windows as the nests are just above both front windows.


    I feel they are in a dangerous situation and would ask the question who is responsible for the removal of these nests..
    Any advice please..

    Not everyone tunes into Springwatch and Countryfile every week.

    Why, I bet there are people here who've never kept up with the Kardashians, or who think that Kanye West is the man who selects the best pilchards before the rest are rejected....

    Without getting into the ins and outs of bees/danger/what kind of bees,

    It's the tenant's responsibility.

    A wasps nest present at the start of the tenancy would be the landlord/council's job to clear, but wasps are not protected species, they are pests.

    Bees however are not considered pests and they are protected. Even if the nest were present at the start of the tenancy, the bees are well within 'their' rights to not be forcibly removed. So, they should be removed by a professional for their safety if your son wants them gone. Call the council, they will likely have a recommended agent.

    For info, in West Kent I was recently quoted £45 for dealing with a wasps nest. We didn't need it in the end as it was just queens flying around looking for new homes.

    Weren't the Kardashians the enemies of Dr Who, two series ago? Isn't Kanye West the seldom seen son of Timothy West and Prunella Scales?

    (I believe the UK does have a secret RAF unit that monitors and responds to alien landings in the UK but you didn't hear that from me.....)

    I think you may be too young to recognise my oblique reference to a very old TV advert, but believe me, that's a very good thing!

    EDIT: This is the the 'modern' one:
