I have a message about hornets nest below. I was debating on whether to remove it or not . Do not want to kill for no reason. But I have not seen the queen at all in a week or so. Did she desert it or is she in there?? The nest looks like a baby tornado with a long funnel. Think its a white faced horner

There are failures in birds & bees, .. many possibilities, one I think of is, she could be run down by a car.

Wow. I was enjoying watching her build and was going to leave it there. Now she's gone its sad. Nest is still there though. At least I didn't kill it but I'm still sad
