The Hideous Nest

On Monday Rex discovered the most hideous nest attached to one of the dormers in our lovely home:

I don't even know what lives there....wasps? hornets? Voldemort? Anyone wanna make a guess as to what sort of scary creature builds such a thing?

The exterminator is coming today between 2 and 5pm. I'll keep you posted.


The Terminator is here....turns out the hideous nest pictured below is a wasps' nest, and that it probably took them a few days or a week to build themselves this lovely home upon my lovely home. Today the Terminator will treat it with toxins for the Queen and her worker wasps to share, and will come back and remove the nest in 2 weeks for an extra $30 if it doesn't dissolve or fall down on its own. I don't envy him his job...he suggested that "it is hard to strategize when you're on a ladder" and he might need some ice for when (not if??) he gets stung.
