Holy crap!

I am insane, but you already know that.  For the past 5 years, I have had aluminum foil covering my daughter's bedroom windows.  You see, I bought her curtains and blinds before she was born.  Both let lots of light into the room, which I thought made the room look lovely.  Then I gave birth to the most wakeful baby EVER.  I quickly realized that she slept much better in a dark room, so I decided to foil her windows.  The blinds were brand new and the curtains matched her nursery theme, so blocking out the light with foil seemed like the most reasonable thing to do (her room is located on the backside of the house, so the foil covered windows aren't visible from the street).

Yesterday I decided to finally take the foil off.  The kids are older and sleep great, so there was really no reason to block out all the natural light in the back of the house (but for the record, the baby's windows are still covered in foil).  After removing everything, I seen this little beauty between the screen and the window...

How in the hell do you remove a bee's nest from your window?  I haven't seen anything crawling on the nest, but I am still too scared to actually try to remove it.  I really wanted to thoroughly clean the windows (they are flithy!), but I guess that is going to have to wait.  Stupid bees.

You can probably spray it with something...go to Home Depot. And then try to remove it early in the day. Good luck!

never in a million years would i have thought of alum foil!! you are brilliant friend! seriously waaaay cheaper than my black out curtains!!

anyways - we had wasp nests in our windows back home all the time. we'd just wait till they were out, then knock them out of the window - clean it all out and wait till they'd build them again. we tried to seal the windows but those wasps are hard core - they always got back in :(
