スズメバチと格闘(大袈裟  笑)  Struggle with a nest of WASP (a bit over ... )

I found a bee's nest under the roof on my house's car garage several days ago. The location of the nest is just above the rear view window of my car, so it was a bit troublesome. I took some photos of the bees and sent them to one of my friends who are conversant with biology (majored in ecology in a graduate school) and asked advice for how to deal with it.

The friend's answer was " apparently they are not bees, probably they are a kind of Asian WASP (refer to the photo),  and if I were you, I would get rid of the nest ". So, I decided to get rid of the nest from there. My biggest concern was being stung by the supposed to be WASPs. I used a BBQ clutch and somehow pulled the nest off of the roof. phew ... (the first pic).

That day's my workout was a kind of deadly battle with the insects.  I wanna thanks for the friend's advice and  hope for the R.I.P of the nest.
The yellow & black stripe of the bees/WASPs reminds me of the Bruce Lee's Game of Death ... 

自宅の車庫の屋根部分にハチの巣を発見。僕のクルマのリアウインドウの真上に位置する場所だったので、そのまま放っておくわけにもいかず、どうしたものか?と思案した挙句、生物学に詳しい友人(環境学専攻)にハチの写真を撮って送り、アドバイスを求めたら、「これは明らかに、ミツバチではないね。おそらく、アジアのスズメバチの一種だと思うよ(写真参照)」とのこと。

というわけで、スズメバチに刺されるのは怖いと思いつつも、バーベキュー用のトグルみたいな、つまむ器具を使ってなんとか巣を取り除きました(写真)
これがこの日のトレーニングになりました(笑)

友人のアドバイスと穏便に対応してくれたスズメバチさんに感謝です。
ハチの黄色と黒の模様を見ると、死亡遊戯を連想してしまいます ...
