A South Carolina man who makes a living removing bee swarms and nests from trees and around homes captured a video of what he claims to be the biggest wasp nest in the state’s history.
Eric “Critter” McCool, owner of McCool’s Wildlife Control & Bee Extractions, estimated the nest to be 10 feet long by 7 feet wide and 2 feet tall with an estimated 350,000 wasps. McCool removed 37 queens by hand. He doesn’t use pesticides, instead relying on what he describes as “bee vacuum and grabbing bags.”) He tears loose pieces of the comb and stuffs them into trash bags.
Mccool removes all kinds of nasty critters and pests. Recent images on his Facebook page show him retrieving a large python for a customer.
