Twitter User Shows Demonic-Looking Wasps Nest Growing On Garage (Tweets)

Yikes! For anyone who's ever had a wasps nest grow on or near their house -- you know how terrifying (and dangerous) that is. For those who don't know, consider yourself lucky. Wasp stings hurt. A lot. 

But, unlike those pesky mosquitos which serve no purpose but to spread disease, at least wasps contribute to the world by controlling pest insect populations. 

And even though they are beneficial to the human population, it's never a good sign to see these terrifying nests growing so close to home. Twitter user, @thegallowboob, had shared a terrifying image of a wasps nest growing around headlights of a garage, giving it a demonic-look whenever the lights are turned on. Other users began sharing the wasps' nest near them, as well as other creepy animals that hang around their house. 

All we can say is... thanks for the nightmares!

Home sweet home! 

From simple scrapes on the ground to elaborately woven structures, birds' nests are temporary yet meticulously built places to raise the young members of the family. 

Because there's such a wide variety of bird species, there's also a wide variety in bird nest architecture.

Here are some photos of different housing styles by various bird species.

These Yellow Jacket 'Super Nests' In Alabama Are Down-Right Terrifying

Charles Ray, an entomologist with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES), says Yellow Jackets are creating "super nests" that are three to four times the size of regular wasp nests! A regular nest is equivalent to the size of a volleyball and houses about 4,000 to 5,000 worker wasps. The "super nests" are housing up to 15,000 worker wasps!
