Wasp Nests

Each species of wasps has their own preferences to where they build their nests. The type of nest built by wasps depends on the species and location. Social wasps produce nests that are constructed with mainly paper pulp. The kind of timber used varies from one species to another and this is what can give many species a nest of distinctive colour. Social Wasps also use other types of nesting material that become mixed in with the nest and it is common to find nests located near to plastic pool or trampoline covers, incorporating distinct bands of colour that reflect the inclusion of these materials that have simply been chewed up and mixed with wood fibres to give a unique look to the nest.
