In mid July we discovered this in one of the cedar trees in the front yard.

This humongous hornets next was about 15 feet in the air and was home to hundreds and hundreds of very large hornets.

Gross, yet amazing.

We called in a pest control service and for a mere (cough, cough, choke) $250

they happily put on their bee keeping suit,

put their can of toxic, smoky chemicals on the end of a very tall poll, knocked down the hornet nest and

provided about 45 minutes of entertainment to Xandra and Theia during naptime.

At the end of naptime, the nest was gone.

So was $250 and naptime.  
What a bunch of pests those hornets turned out to be!
