    How big is your nest

    As the title suggests how big is your wasps nest. Went up the attic yesterday only to be attacked by a swarm of wasps (b******s) who were actually trying to attack the lights. So I let them calm down and went back up about 20 mins later to see if I could find the nest....took me a while as my loft is massive and there she was tucked away in one of the corners..........massive mother of a nest......a good 3-4 feet in length....A quick phone call later to the EH folk and hopefully today it shall be removed. I will get pictures as I literally froze on the spot when I saw how big it was and it must of been there for some time and I've been up there alot as I have a Scalextric track up there..........OOooOO!!!!!

    I have to carry an epipen, allergic to the stings of the little f**kers.

    We had the council come round and destroy a nest last year, he said when he starts they may get a bit aggressive, I told him to come and let me know when he was done.

    I parked down the road and sat in the car

    Dude, that's a massive nest! We definitely need some pics. We had an old one up in our loft when we first moved in, but it was about the size of a gold ball

    I've never seen a nest, but there was one in the roof part of my house extension, we could see the wasps flying in and out between the wall and the roof skirt part. Local Council sprays this powdery stuff in it, it's been done twice in the last 5 years or so.

    But talking back about lofts, I had to climb up mine to get something once, and a queen bee of some sort, it was huge!, flew toward the light after I flicked it on! Jumped down and closed the hatch as fast as I could! Called in the exterminators again, and couldn't find a thing in the loft!

    Still feel the chills thinking about it!

    I was on a plumbing job having to remove the F&E cistern and stumbled across a mahoosive nest. There was roughly 10-15 wasps all at once around me but going for the lead light I was using.
    I ran across the rafters and literally jumped out the loft like a girl. Unplugged the light and put the hatch back. I dare say the light is still up there to this day. Hate the *******s!

    The guy hasn't been round yet mate and I aint going up there. I switch on the lights just to wind them up as they seem to swarm around them. Dont worry mate your pics are coming.

    Its the only thing I run away from nowadays is wasps.......fookin hate them but if you think theyre nasty then check this bad boy out.



    This is the Japanese Giant Hornet and apparently they are creeping across the globe. These things eat wasps and bees for brekkie.....OOooOO. 1 of these beauties can destroy 40 bees in an hour. A small gang can lay waste to an entire bee colony leaving thousands dead.

    I can't stand wasps, they stick you for fun, unlike bees who are all fuzzy and warm until you p*ss them off! lol

    not exactly wasps but this was a evil bee.

    about 2 weeks ago, I was in the kitchen on a saturday making a fry up. i had the door open while I was doing it. Next thing I hear is a loud humming sound getting louders and louder!. Turned and saw this massive heffalump of a bee, grabbed a newspaper ad went to war(shouting sparta)

    It got a few hits and decided it wanted no more and flew out the door.

    Sunday -

    had the door open and the same Bee came through the door! I knew it was the same one as it wasnt flying straight, still a bit effed up from the beating it got the day before! I didnt have nothing to hit it with so I jumped behind the door and waited for it to go which it did.

    Monday Morning -

    Wake up, had a shower, then started brushing my teeth. Once I done that I turned around to get my stuf ready for work and what do I see!!!

    On the floor crawling towards to is the same bee!

    it flew at me,I fell into the bath, grabbing a towel trying to hit the bloody thing!

    in the end, it went to the window so I opened it.

    Never see it since but im sure its out there plotting its revenge!

    Right then and here it is.............after waiting 2.5 hours after the boy had poisoned the entrance to the nest I went up to have a wee look. There is another part of the nest thro the cavity part of the wall so its kinda feckin huge!!!!

    I might hoover up all the dead wasps and see how many there are dead in the loft.........as there will be quite alot including the queen within that nest.

    Nice one mark!

    that is quite a beauty!

    take it out and break it open and you will find hundreds of wasp grubs in the honeycombs!

    like really fat fury maggots! A brilliant fishing bait when alive!

    That IS impressive! They're frightening to see when the occupants are buzzing around them, and a marvel to look at when they're made safe. It's incredible to think Wasps can do that... just like soft brown paper tissue.

    I remember as a kid, me and 5 or 6 mates finding a small field of mown grass! we decided to kick it around a little... well you should have seen us charging around the field & up the road with a cloud of angry wasps chasing us after someone kicked the lid off one, we were screaming blue murder! every one of us got stung at least once that day.

    go give it a jab with a finger to make sure they're all dead... I dare ya.

    The nest isn't removed as its full of poison so next year when they return hopefully as the nest is dead it will deter them and if one should enter then he's dead too. There are actually 2 nests in that picture.....dunno why maybe the larger of the 2 was overcrowded and queenie told them to do one and go find another nest.
