Video: Yellow Jackets Go Berserk When a Camera is Placed Near Their Nest

This is one wasp nest you don't want to stumble upon while you're tromping through the woods. The LiveLeak video was uploaded yesterday, but it was shot last June in Florida. The nest is about 3 feet tall by 2 feet wide, according to the video description. All the popping noises you hear? That's the sound of bees smashing into the camera.

All yellow jacket colonies contain workers, queens, and drones. The largest colonies have up to 5,000 workers.

The nest was eventually destroyed by Jonathan Simpkins, the owner of insect IQ.

"It was so exciting. It was one of the best times in my business and professional career to deal with something like this."
