ENGLAND — A man opened the door to the bedroom and couldn’t believe what he saw: thousands of wasps in a giant nest inside the bed.

According to The Daily Mail, approximately 5,000 of the critters had chewed through the bedding in the rarely-used bedroom in his mother’s home in Hampshire.

A pest-control expert said he hadn’t seen anything like it in 45 years.

“At one stage there must have been 2,000 wasps buzzing around me,” he said. “If someone had gone in to the room and not known what it was it would have been pretty serious.”

He said it took two hours to kill all the insects, calling it an apocalyptic scene.
