Paper Wasp Stages

(1/1)

The15thMember:
Last night while us adults were watching a rom-com (Table 19, I would highly recommend it) my young siblings were being biologists.  They found a small paper wasp nest under the eaves of their chicken barn, and they fly-swattered the four adults who were guarding the nest to death and took down the nest.  Then on the spur of the moment, they decided to dissect it.  When the movie was over, they showed me all the developmental stages of the wasps that they had removed from the nest, from egg to pupa. I was super impressed with the kids' work.  :grin: I was also extremely surprised to find that the wasp larvae appear to have strangely spherical bodies.  :shocked:  Who knew!

Thanks.  I actually pulled a frame of drones today for that purpose.
