Thank you City of Tigard

Real Estate Agent with Realty Pro Oregon, LLC 200311024

 Recently I wrote a blog about some unfriendly visitors to the park behind the condo conversion project I am presently working on. We had a large Hornet's nest in a tree in Englewood Park and some workers from the city actually got stung. Click here to read that post

They had pointed this out to me while showing the property to avoid us from getting stung ourselves. After my client left, I saw some other workers down at the project. I found a worker and asked what was going to happen to the nest. They said they were going to spray the nest killing all the hornets, since it is in a park that kids frequent often. I asked after they spray the nest if they could leave it for me to remove and give it to my brother who is a sixth grade science teacher at a local school in Tigard.

The worker I was talking to made some quick phone calls, and within 5 minutes I had a definite YES, I could have it. So, the next day, he told me that it had been sprayed and I could go get it anytime I wanted. So, within in minutes I was up on a ladder and was cutting the nest down, and at lunch time, I got to visit my brother's classroom with his newest addition to the kids' education. A very large hornet's nest! Now, we have it hanging so it doesn't get damaged. (They feel very much like soft papier mache.)

The kids this year won't get to see it, but the kids late next year will get to.

Wow,  That looks really nasty.  I used to knock those out of the trees when I was smaller and dumber.

Gary - If you used to know those out of trees, you are lucky you got any bigger! That was stupid!

that looks like a pretty big nest. I was stung over 20 times in one incident! Needless to say I didn't feel very good afterwards...haha.
