Central Florida is abuzz over a recent discovery.

A huge hive was found inside an abandoned mobile home in Hillsborough County.

No one knows how long it was there, but the yellow jacket hive was about the size of a minivan and growing.

Authorities estimated the hive held some 200,000 yellow jackets.

Once an exterminator calmed the insects with chemicals, the hive was cut up and removed.
