Inside nests: Mix of cocoon types and wasp pupae
Last week a mason bee keeper asked me to look at these two photos and give them feedback on the insects inside the nesting tunnels. Every nesting tunnel tells a story!
|These are beneficial wasp pupae encased in a very delicate cover.
These beneficial wasps provision their nests with either spiders,
aphids or moth larvae. Sometimes if an egg does not
develop the larvae food remains in the cell.
