A homeowner called an exterminator after they found worms coming out of the wall and assumed there was a dead animal inside the walls. However, what the exterminator found shocked everyone.

Nick Castro from Nick’s Extreme Pest Control in Santa Rosa posted photos on the company’s Facebook page showing thousands of acorns pouring out of a hole in the wall of a home. The now-viral video all over social media shows Castro scooping out handfuls of nuts. He repeatedly scoops out more as the stockpile covers the entire floor.

“Bird was a bit of a hoarder,” Castro joked on social media.

In the end, the acorns fille dup eight garbage bags and weighed a total of 700 pounds. Castro told The Press Democrat that he was examining the home for mealworms. He estimated that the acorns were towering 20-25 feet high in the home’s chimney. He thinks that a pair of acorn woodpeckers were building the stockpile for at least two or three years at that point.

“The more acorns I pulled out from the wall, the more there were. It felt like it wasn’t going to end,” Castro told the newspaper.

The acorn collection has now gone viral on social media and people have some hilarious things to say about it.

Omg these woodpeckers are more prepared for retirement than I am,” one person commented on Instagram.

“The woodpeckers: “I’ll never financially recover from this” another commented.

Put it back.” another joked.
