Paper Wasp Nest

Friendly Warriors

Wasps are our friends. They hunt insects that I don’t want around, like Emerald Ash Borers, caterpillars that eat my garden plants, etc. Generally they build their nests out of the way as they like privacy. This one is in a small maple tree out in the south field. I spotted it while I was out taming piglets.

Outdoors: 74°F/52°F Sunny

Daily Spark: Ascribing everything to good or bad luck means one fails to learn from experience that would help bias the odds in your favor.

    How high off the ground was it? There’s a theory that the higher it is, the harder the winter. Last year around here the nests were very low, under 15′. But it was a long hard winter, and the snow came late here, the ground froze below 4′.

    • About head height. I see them at many different heights so I don’t put much faith in that theory. For the record, this was a normal winter for us. Normal temperatures, maybe slightly warmer than some (never got below -25°F) and a normal amount of snow, neither deep nor shallow.
