not quite wordless wednesday...

Did you ever have opportunity to go through your grandmother's attic? To be able to travel back into time while you admired the items your grandmother held dear from a time now past? To sit for hours on the attic floor as she reminisced about life as a young girl, a new wife, and a first time mom. To experience the joy as she rediscovered memories tucked away in the attic?

There is nothing better than discovering treasures that are tucked away in an attic.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I AM FAIRLY CERTAIN THAT THOSE TREASURES DO NOT INCLUDE A WASP?/HORNETS? NEST THAT SPANS ABOUT 10 INCHES ACROSS IN DIAMETER.

***my husband went up and took these for me:) He bought a can of spray to kill them, but after I saw the size of the nest I encouraged him to find a pesticide bomb or something~~I would rather him NOT have to be taken to the ER because he was attacked by 100s of these!!

  5. my hubby broke his femur BAD when he dropped a hammer on the deck fixing a gutter. The hammers force disconnected one of those white wasp nests that was bigger then a basketball! He was stuck a ton of times and spent over 2 weeks in the hospital!

  6. That is HUGE! Wasps are vicious little things too. My husband had a couple attack him while he was mowing the lawn a couple weeks back.. Apparently he got too close to "their" bush. We need to trim it up but I'm betting there's a nest in there and it scares me.

  8. We had a basket ball size yellow jacket type wasp next immediately outside of our kitchen door. We watched it grow for weeks reluctant to harm them. Looked them up on the internet and all. But after a couple of us got bitten same brave or reckless soul knocked it in with a broom handle while I was away, and soon they all departed. Doing it after dark is recommended, as it gives you a couple extra seconds while they waken. Good luck with yours. Happy WW

  19. Ewww..that's really scary to find in the attic.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Scary! Better to spray them at night, when they are not active - hope it worked out!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Holy moly! That is disturbing. I am glad nobody got stung in the taking of these pictures! Treasures... no. Haha!

    ReplyDelete

  26. I would have had a heart attack. I am so afraid of wasps/hornets/bees. Not treasures for sure. Happy WW!

  27. OMG! We actually had a HUGE one, about a foot in diameter on the outside of our house. but regardless of where it's found, it's still scary!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh my! That looks eerily familiar to the nest my dog discovered this past weekend- she was covered in bees/hornets and somehow didn't get stung. I on the other hand got stung at least 5 times trying to rescue her.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow I would have been freaking out but it's a great picture. Scary but interesting.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. Finding that would be startling enough, but 10 inches??!! Wow!

    ReplyDelete
  34. NOT FUN! Those things are everywhere but we have two red wasp nests here. Good luck with that!

  35. Eee... scary! But you're very brave to take a photo of this. HappyWW! :)

  36. I have encountered a few of these in my time. I find the best approach is to get them at night. Even when I spray them, if it is night, they do not fly. And they are all at home at that time, so the mass murder is more efficient.

    Happy WW!
