It may be a nightmare come to life, or it may be a harbinger of the apocalypse, but it is actually happening: yellow jacket super nests are popping up more often in Alabama. 

Grab the healing crystal or anxiety medication of your choice before you read any further, but....

Scientists are cautioning Alabamians to be on the lookout for massive yellow jacket nests. A mild winter combined with an abundant food supply means these soulless suckers have everything they need to create massive nests--some as big as a Volkswagen Beetle. A single super nest can hold over 15,000 yellow jackets.

If you see one, scream, cry, and then contact a licensed pest control company for removal.
