Britney Spears has called in pest control experts because her new beachside mansion is infested with bugs. The sexy star, who plans to marry fiancé Kevin Federline in the garden of the £4million pad next month, has been forced to halt wedding plans while exterminators kill off the wood-eating termites. A neighbour revealed: "It's not unusual for people who buy a home here to have it fumigated before they move in." Pest control experts have covered the pop babe's entire house in a huge striped canopy while the work is being carried out to protect neighbours from the poisonous fumes. Britney splashed out on the luxury five-bedroom family home last month to make room for her future step-children, three-year-old Kori and newborn Kaleb, from Kevin's previous relationship with 'Moesha' star Shar Jackson. The couple had initially planned to wed at the exclusive Beverly Hills Hotel in November but rescheduled the wedding when news of the location leaked out.

Next month's nuptials will be Britney's second trip down the aisle this year.
