Facts about Wasp

Wasps are loners, and there are also social insects. Public wasps live in huge colonies, single people live alone. There are 17,000 species of wasps, but only 1,500 of them are public.

Sockets of wasps can be simple and complex. Some nests are just a hole in the ground, other nests are constructed in an interesting way from mud and twigs and have a large number of cells and courses.

In each nest there is, at least, a wasp-queen, as well as working wasps and males, this social fact is already known by other insects.

Not all wasps build nests. Some wasps, such as shiny wasps, lay their eggs in the nests of bees or other wasps.

Other types of wasps, instead of building nests, lay eggs in stalks, leaves, fruits and flowers of plants.

Adult wasps feed on nectar, as well as fruit and plant juice, and larvae feed on insects.

Many types of wasps are parasitic by nature, which means that they live as part of their lives as parasites inside other insects. Larvae of such wasps feed on other insects and sometimes eat plant tissue.
