A son visiting his mother this past summer received the shock of a lifetime. When he went into an unused guest bedroom, he found a giant, 3-foot wasp nest on the bed.
The mother was not in the room for several months, and whoever was last in the room left the window open. That apparently made an inviting target for thousands of wasps.
Here is the nest. When the exterminator arrived, he estimated there were at least 5,000 wasps in the nest, along with 700 queen wasps. He said it was the biggest wasp nest he’d ever seen.
After the initial shock wore off, the exterminator suited up, and got to work.
It was a tough battle, but they managed to get rid of all the wasps. He even saved the blanket the nest was built on.
This is a living nightmare. Wasps are last insect on Earth that I would want to cohabit with. Yuck! I hope they installed new windows after this incident.
