    I call this tree Nervous Nellie.. it's always the first to loose it's leaves at the sign of any cool weather. As you can tell, it's leaves are barely hanging on...
    I came home today from the store and looked up and Nervous Nellie has a visitor..
    I don't know if it's a hornets nest, wasp nest or what kind of nest, but something lives in there.
    I called the pest control and he said to just monitor it (like I'm going to stand out there and watch it.. NOT!) but to see if any bees go in and out.. and then he'd come and "smoke them out", but leave the nest...seems to me that it'd be better to knock it down...
    Has anyone else had something like this before?

    Yup. That's a Bald Hornets nest. They are nasty little insects. They attack with no provocation. I would definitely have a professional come take it away. Best to do it when it is cold and they are kinda dormant. Plug the hole, cover with a plastic bag and cut it down.

    Good luck.

    you definitely don't want to knock it down. have you ever heard the expression "stirrin' up a hornet's nest?" you'd be attacked by a swarm before it hit the ground. :shock:

    it will probably be expensive, but that's a job for a professional.

    I wouldn't touch it. Hornets are nasty and mean. Let a pro take care of it.
