Oh Hell No: Video Of Exterminator Cleaning Up A Giant, Active Hornet's Nest

November 27, 2017


This is a video of Louisiana based exterminator Jude Verret cleaning a massive hornet's nest out of a backyard shed. Personally, I would have solved my hornet problem with a gallon of gasoline and a match, but that's just me and I'm from the school of fire fixes everything. It really is a great school -- right up there with Hogwarts. The sound of all the hornets buzzing around and constantly hitting the camera is pretty freaky. If I were Jude I would have taken one look at that hornet's nest and promised myself tomorrow I'm looking through the job classifieds, but for the rest of today I'm drinking hard to forget about what I just saw. "It's what I would have done." See? Jesus knows what's up.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who sounds like he may have graduated from the school of fire fixes everything as well.

    Isn't this exactly what fire was invented for?

  • Homestar

    This is actually a much better video of this nest. Same guy, same nest, but it's a little earlier in the process, and he really gets the camera in the shed while he's pulling the first bits out before he put it on a tripod.

    You know at least a few of those wasps had bumper stickers that said "GIANT EXTERMINATOR 2017 - Just End It Already"

    That's a man who deserves a free beer. He's doing the Lord's work.

    Seriously flamethrower the entire thing and never look back. There isn't enough money in the world for me to get within 500 miles of that thing.

  • Jenness

    I can't stop laughing at the fact that this dude has this tiny can of spray against this humongous swarm and hive. Like WTF is that teeny can gonna do? I would be seriously questioning my pest control professional if they showed up with that instead of flame thrower -sized backback full of death spray.

    Just get a new shed, christ.

    Sorry, but "Christ" was his partner who called in sick that day, this is actually Bruno.

    Blowtorch would have been faster.

  • GeneralDisorder

    While I think fire is a good solution I wouldn't go with a blowtorch.

    You want something that makes a nice large fireball. You definitely don't want a clean burn either. Propane would work fine but a yellow sooty flame is gonna deplete the oxygen and make the hornets less aggressive due to hypoxia. Granted, you'll likely destroy the shed if it's too much fire.

    How long does one ignore a problem for it to become this big?

  • Bling Nye

    If you ignore it forever, it's never a problem.

  • Meh

    The HORROR. Why even bother cleaning it, destroy it completely.

    Wow. I will have the heebie Jeebies for the remainder of the day
