Jonathan Simkins is an Entomologist or in simple terms, an insect control expert. He was called by a private property owner to an area in the woods of Central Florida to get rid of a humongous yellow jacket wasp nest. He never imagined that it would be this large.

According to Yahoo News and channel 8 WFLF TV: The nest measured over 6.5 feet tall and 8 feet wide. Simkins, owner of the insect removal company, Insect I.Q., filmed his encounter with the giant nest and is heard on the video saying, "This is the largest nest I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I’ve been doing this for over 20 years." The nest was in a remote area, but if anyone happened upon it, the results could have been deadly. Simkins told WFLA News Channel 8, "We definitely did save lives. This land is hunted. It's leased out for hunters, if somebody comes across this, you're not going to get away."
