We went to my parents’ house last weekend and they had a surprise for us…now don’t look ahead until you take a guess…do you know what this is?
So you know, I have this thing for stinging insects…
This is a baldfaced hornet’s nest. It turns out that these things are not really hornets in the official definition, but are a type of wasp in the same genus as the yellow jacket…of course, both creatures are mean and kinda suck.
I took a few pics before we sprayed this nest. I like most critters and leave them where they are when I can, but making a home on the back porch which my parents use all the time wasn’t a good choice!
