As the backstory goes, an enormous wasp nest had been terrorizing the village of Jiangjin Tsz Wan Yuen Tsuen, China. Approximately 5 feet in diameter, the nest was about 100 feet off the ground and unreachable by the local Orkin man. (Yes, Orkin franchises are up for grabs in China.)
A nest with similar dimensions, about the same size as a Smart car, was found in Britain several years ago and was said to contain half a million insects.
