This is the giant 3.2-foot round wasp nest found in the attic of a home in Corby, Northamptonshire, England. The nest was discovered when the house was being renovated, and includes a 4.5-foot long tunnel connecting the nest with the outside. Thankfully for the homeowner, the nest was abandoned over a year ago, and all that remained of the 6,000 - 10,000 wasp colony were a couple hundred dead wasps around the nest. What a relief. So if you had to choose, would you rather have chain-rattling ghosts or stinging wasps in your attic? "Homeowner's insurance and a fire." Damn, you saw right through my trick question, I like that about you.
Keep going for a couple more shots.
Thanks to Hunter N, who agrees the first thing you should do whenever you find a wasp nest is bet a friend to poke it with a stick.
