Neighbors in a village on Spain’s Canary Islands called the authorities worrying what might be inside an abandoned house. What the police found was a nearly 22-foot wasp nest thought to house millions of the stinging insects.
ThinkSpain reported that the home in the town of San Sebastián de La Gomera has now been blocked off due to the infestation. The nest itself was measured to be 21’9″ long.
Officials said they don’t believe native wasps would build a nest so large, leading them to speculate it is an invasive species from Africa.
