Discovery of Millions of wasps in gigantic 21-foot nest

The town of San Sebastián de La Gomera in the Canary Islands was buzzing with fear when a gigantic 21-foot 9-inch wasp nest was discovered in the hallway of an abandoned home. Police investigated after they received calls from several residents about a large number of wasps swarming the area. Officers were unable to track down the homeowners and broke into the uninhabited dwelling to find the astounding nest. Because of its unusually large size, experts believe the nest was built by an invasive species of wasp that migrated from Africa, just 100 kilometers away, and it was likely to house millions of the insects.
