We have had a wasp nest on our house this past spring, summer and fall. Just about everyone was stung. Brent is slightly allergic but we let it remain until cold weather when it is just eggs. They lay dormant until spring. It was a beautiful thing to see and the wasps made it from a nearby Aspen tree. Brent decided to take it down yesterday. He was a little nervous not knowing for sure if they really were "dormant" or not.
This is the nest. It has layers of paper thin insulation made from the Aspen tree. It covered the honey combs like a cone. Then there were several honey combs on the inside where they lay the eggs. It is amazing and fascinating! No evolutionary accident in my mind! Rather, an awesome creation from our Heavenly Father!
