A creepy garden "infested with snakes, underground bees and creepy-crawlies" has been demolished.
Barriers have appeared outside an abandoned house in Gloucester.
Gloucester City Council said they would not intervene to tackle the issue by chopping down the garden but the owner may have taken matters in to their own hands, Gloucestershire Live reports.
Metal barriers have now been placed in front of the driveway to the Falkner Street home and the overgrown front garden has been chopped down.
A 'site safety’ warning sign has been placed in front of the building warning people not to enter the property.
The next-door neighbour’s grandson Mohamed Kara, 35 has said the works have been taking place for a couple of weeks and has his "fingers crossed" the owners are taking action.
Mr Kara said the overgrown property, which has been empty for more than three years, had "stressed out" his 84-year-old grandmother Marium Patel.
He said: "There’s been all sorts of creepy-crawlies coming out because of it.

"There was an incident just before winter kicked in with underground bees, it felt like it was coming through from the other side but I can’t prove that.
"The main thing is the foxes and God knows what else is in there. It’s bound to have snakes in there, the way it is overgrown.”
This follows complaints about another house in nearby Conduit Street, where the next-door neighbour complained it was "infested with snakes and rats".
A council spokesman said "we do not consider it is a proportionate approach" and will not take action until anything else "changes".
