This Queen Paper Wasp has begun her nest, as soon as the first workers begin emerging in about a month, they will take over the building and feeding of their sisters. Unfortunately, this wasp nest had to be destroyed, it is at the cabin where we have our summer science camp. Colonial wasps like these are very protective of their nests and we can't take the chance of someone getting stung. I feel bad about having to kill them, but it is just too dangerous to mix wasps and 25 middle school-aged kids!
