Woman Comes Home To Discover Huge Wasp Nest Built On Window

Woman Comes Home To Discover Huge Wasp Nest Built On Window

A woman who went to stay with her parents for a couple of weeks returned home to find a huge wasp nest had been built on her window - offering a view of the inner workings of the nest. You can check it out here (though warning, it might make your skin crawl a little bit):

The video above was uploaded to TikTok by user @alyssonisboring and it went viral, racking up more than 15.7 million views and 2.9 million likes.

In the clip, Alysson said: "They built it against the window so I can actually see inside of it and it's super creepy and kind of weird, but who gets the opportunity to watch wasps like this? Only wasp scientists do.

"Anyways, there's these three babies and I've named them Wiley, Wynonna and Walt."

Alysson is indeed right in pointing out that the unusually transparent foundations of the nest allow us to see 'behind the scenes' - though I personally wish I never had.

Essentially, backstage in a wasp nest consists primarily of lots and lots of wasps scuttling about frantically on top of each other while larvae steadily pulse away, preparing to join the overcrowded wasp house.

It's not exactly a window view many would seek out, and judging by the response to the video, a lot of people wouldn't have been quite as accommodating as Alysson.

Commenting on the video, one person said: "I would've named the babies 'oh', 'hell', 'nah' and lit it on fire."

Another wrote: "That's pretty cool have you tried feeding them flames?"

See - not very accommodating. Since when did people become so anti window wasp nests?

But all you window wasp nest haters out there will be pleased to hear that Alysson's gardener is a fellow window wasp nest hater and he took it upon himself to destroy it, which he did by spraying it with wasp killer before knocking it down.

After sharing the news on TikTok, it seemed people had a change of heart about the window wasp nest.

One person commented: "RIP Wiley, Wynonna, Wade, William, Winston and the whole wasp swarm.

"I'm sad there's no more wasp nest watch. I was enjoying this unique view."

Another said: "I just spent 15 minutes growing an affection for a family of wasp aliens and then you put a hit out on them. This docuseries took a morbid turn."

If you too have developed a strange affinity for the insects then you'll be pleased to hear that Alysson has since reported that the family have relocated to the corner of her yard underground.

If you want further updates, then probably best you don't reach out to Alysson, as judging from her TikTok bio - which reads 'please stop asking about the wasps' - she's probably had quite enough of that.
