Giant Nest

So we found this thing hanging out in our front yard. The question is what the heck is it though. BIL suggested bald face hornets. The hole into that thing could house a small bird though... A bit scary what might be inside, especially since it's so big.

Definitely bald face hornet! Looks just like the one we had in our tree. Have fun with that one :) Have you ever seen a bald face hornet..they bite, but don't sting. They are UGLY!!

Oh, and Reece... according to the stuff I'm reading they do sting and will do so multiple times when really mad. Weeee.

we get these all over our apartment complex. they are fascinating to watch grow. we have one right over our balcony that we've watched from beginning that is the size of yours. we wait till winter and then the hornets leave or are dormant then you can get them down and burn them. we know ours are already dormant because they aren't flying in and out. prior to a couple of weeks ago they were always flying in and out and tons all over the outside of it.
