What you are looking at in the first image below should give anyone the creeps. It is a wasp nest of gigantic proportions made in a bed that is rarely used. I have no idea how such thing can be built into a house and no one would notice.
The nest was found in Winchester, Hampshire, England, by a man who was visiting his mother and went into a rarely-used bedroom. You can only imagine how he must have felt when he discover an estimated 5,000 wasps which had created a gigantic nest by chewing through the bedding, blanket and pillow. Pest-control expert John Birkett was called in to deal with the problem. He said:
In 45 years I have never seen anything like it. There must have been 5,000 wasps. It was a job to deal with it. I had to put all my protective gear on. At one stage there must have been 2,000 wasps buzzing around me. If someone had gone in to the room and not known what it was it would have been pretty serious.
They must have started making the nest at the start of May. It’s amazing that the woman didn’t realise she was living with them. We got a call as we normally do, but I thought that it was unusual it was a bedroom.I opened the door and I just couldn’t believe it. The pillow was covered in this three foot wasp nest and they were still busy building the nest.I tried to destroy as many as I could with the workers flying around the room. The nest came in half so the room was completely full of wasps. I was covered in them. The home-owner was terrified.
Mr. Birkett used chemical spray to get rid of the insects during a two-hour operation. (Scroll down for the video.)
1. An estimated 5,000 wasps were discovered inside the mattress at the home in Winchester, Hampshire.
2. Last month, an estimated 10,000-strong swarm of bees descended on a sun tent in St. Ives, Cornwall, England.
3. In May, thousands of the insects settled on the figure of Talos in the centre of Cambridge, England.
