attic nest

Home inspectors have to enter potentially hazardous areas. Attics can contain small things like bees or hornets or can be host to larger things. This photo was taken by a home inspector in the attic of a Southwest Kentucky home. The inspector had crawled across 30 feet of attic when he came upon this nest. Not knowing what was rustling under this huge mount of pine needles, the inspector wisely choose to retreat back out of the attic, rather than confront an animal whose home was being threatened.
