How Wasps Managed to Build This Massive Nest On a Bed


Ok. Things I don’t like are the top two in this article – stingy flying things, and anything with holes in it ( The nest). In this absolute nightmare, this couple went upstairs to check on a rarely used room and found this horrifying sight.

From the article:

In more than 40 years of working in the pest control business, Birkett said this was the largest nest he had ever seen.

“I got dressed up looking like ‘Batman and Robin’ and went into the little tiny bedroom. I was spraying them left right and center,” Birkett said.

After two hours of swatting and spraying, Birkett said he was able to get rid of the wasps and even salvage the crocheted blanket they were nesting on.

The nest had grown so large because the family rarely uses the room on the second floor of their five-bedroom home, he said.

The wasps snuck in through an open window and used the bed as their home for nearly three months, chewing through eight inches of the mattress and two pillows, according to Birkett.

The family most likely didn’t hear the wasps accumulating because they are silent while nesting, he said.

Seriously, all I can add is shudder, and thank God this isn’t my house. I would lose my freaking mind.
