Alabama researchers have released terrifying photos that show massive wasp nests that could get up to the size of a Volkswagen Beetle.

According to the Alabama Cooperative Extension System there are 'super nests' filled with 15,000 yellow jackets in Alabama. 

One nest that was recently discovered has at least 500,000 wasps inside. 

Researchers noted that more than 90 'super nests', also known as perennial yellow jacket nests, were found in Alabama in 2006. 

They believe that in 2019, parts of the state will see a similar occurrence. A total of 15 nests have been found in Alabama so far.
