Officials have sealed the house and are looking for ways to measure the size and take out the honeycomb.

Maybe Guinness Book of World Records will recognize the honeycomb on the island of Tenerife is the largest honeycomb in the world. This title belongs to a honeycomb 3.7m long, 1.75m radius and 5.5m circumference in New Zealand. It was discovered on a farm in Waimauku (near Auckland) in 1963. Experts say it is a shelter of a German wasp.

Hornets build nest by chewing wood and mixing with their saliva to create a paper-like substance.
