A contender for the world's largest wasp nest has been discovered on the Spanish island of Tenerife.

Stuff.co.nz said:

A seven metre-long wasp nest, found in Spain, could see New Zealand lose its Guinness World record as home of the world's largest wasp nest.

I was reading about this last night. Very big wasp nest.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Hey Waspie_Dwarf, remember when you told us you were adopted and didn't know where you came from, other than it was VERY BIG family?

Found it.

How could you deal with this? Perhaps if you very carefully (and very quietly) tent the house at night you could fog the nest, but if you get this many wasps stirred up people could be stung to death.

I would have had a heart attack or something. I hate wasps like most people hate spiders or snakes.

Couldn't they just blow them up? Or use several flame throwers?

Or, better still, blast them with music from Justin Beiber. They will quickly commit suicide.

Napalm then clean up crew.

Or a massive can of spray and a lighter lol =P~~

I wonder how long it had been abandoned for and if there was a way to find out how long the wasps had occupied the vacant house, it'd be interesting to see how much time was put into it and if they could spray it in a way to preserve the whole house and put it onto display after fibreglassing the entire house and contents.
