    I'm not quite sure what you're asking here wolfbird_94. Your picture looks like a bee or wasp nest. What exactly are you asking? [​IMG]

    That looks an awful lot like a hornet's nest to me.

    The wasp came with it??~~How did you get that nest with occupant!!??? Was it at night when they were resting? [​IMG]

    O~~you are brave~I just got bitten/stung by a very angry wasp...It really hurt. My son used a snake bite extractor to help me remove some of the venom...but still it was very painful. [​IMG]

    You sure that's not a mud dabber nest? Is it a paper nest or a clay nest? Mud dabbers are pretty peaceful..

    Looks like a hornets nest to me also and I would destroy it and not worry about the parents comming back to take care of it...I cant have wasps or hornets around here so I destroy them when I find them.

    In my humble opinion, most people get way too freaked out by wasp and hornet nests. My husband is one of these people - every time we see a wasp he yells "white-faced hornet" and runs for the hills! [​IMG] I have been stung many times while gardening - sure it hurts, but you'll survive. I've had a wasp nest on my balcony for years now, and we seem to coexist happily.
