Nest Found in Rafters - Eastern Shore of Maryland - Vespula germanica
Easton, Talbot County, Maryland, USA Size: @ 24 inches in diameter
Found this while doing some demolition on my new (old) house. There appears to be no live activity around this nest, but I would like to get an idea of what it might be, and if I need to get a professional to deal with it. I can take some higher res pics if that would be helpful.
