There is always a surprise on every job…especially on old houses. Sometimes the surprise is pleasant, sometimes decidedly not so. Sometimes the surprise just lets you know how lucky you are…

Yep, what we have here are several large wasp’s nests…they were entering the gap from the “too small” window pane, and making their home between the window and the interior screen, cleverly hidden behind the weirdly placed fuse box. There are at least a half dozen more in there.
I can’t tell you how glad I am that I discovered this in the cold weather…instead of having to greet the screaming death from the skies. It’s always fun trying to fight off clouds of stinging, lethal insects…all whilst sticking tools into live electrical boxes.
It’s been cold enough that they were dormant. I’ve got bug zot. They couldn’t move. I won.
Now I just have to clean up the mess…
