WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (WFLA) – A Winter Haven, Florida homeowner is working to remove a huge yellow jacket nest, before the wasps that live inside do any more harm.

The wasps built a massive nest on a reclining chair that’s stored outside a home.

The nest starts at one side of the recliner, extends behind it, and then onto the other side.

A cat that had jumped up onto the recliner to take a nap was attacked and killed by the yellow jackets, according to Tony Smarte, whose mother lives in the house.

“It’s huge,” he said. “I got chills up and down my spine.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
