Thoughts on the Hornet’s Nest

hornet nestTo “stir up a hornet’s nest” means to cause a commotion.  When you mess with hornets, you can get stung.  It’s a phrase that dates back to the early 1700s, and it’s not known who first coined the term. 

Yes, it’s good to take care when stirring up trouble. But it’s also good to remember that a hornet’s nest can be swept off a wall when it’s just being built. After it really takes hold, you may need professional help to uproot it.
