Folks in Tampa, FL are buzzing...

Polk county nest ... about a monster yellowjacket nest found on the back of a homeowner's garage in Polk County. The thing is 3 feet high and 6 feet long, and teeming with an estimated 5,000 yellowjackets.

The link from Fox 13 in Tampa contains video that is worth watching.

The yellowjackets got a little creative in building,as the nest has unusual "tendrils" growing out from it.

Across the pond, folks in Scotland also had a recent yellowjacket wasp scare. A museum in Glasgow, the People's Palace, had to close temporarily because of a wasp nest on the top floor which caused two staffers to be stung.
