Spring cleaning at my place starts with the bird houses in my backyard. I open them and clean out last years nest, both bird and hornets. Today I discovered four live hornets in one. Luckily they are pretty harmless when it's this cold ( under 40 ).
Yep that's me holding up a nest with a very cold hornet hanging onto it. Poor things were taken by surprise. When I scooped them and thier nest out onto the frozen ground.
This nest was interesting.
The ball like nest was added to an existing honeycomb like nest.
Made me think the extra walls were added just so they could survive the winter. But what they couldn't know is that I do Spring cleaning.
