He Destroys a Hornet's Nest So We Don't Have To

It takes nerves of steel and a trusty bee suit to do what Shawn Woods does! He approaches a large bald face hornet's nest, shakes it, and then takes it apart to show us what's inside. As you might guess, what's inside is even more hornets, but also a nicely symmetrical nursery structure with hexagonal cells containing eggs, larvae, pupae, and emerging adult hornets. And the queen! The video ends with him making a gift of the structure to someone who would really appreciate it. I know you wouldn't try this at home, but be aware that even watching this may give your the heebie-jeebies. (via Digg)
