Wasps Hive
A wasps hive is an engineering marvel from the insect world. Using materials such as wood fibres to mud, sand and clay. Wasps create a hive that is built using a complex structure that is used as a home and a nursery for their young. Materials for construction are harvested such as wood fibres from trees or even outdoor wooden furniture. These fibres are chewed by the wasp and mixed with its saliva to create a paper like material. Each individual wasp creates this paper substance and constructs sheets of paper that build the cells or the outer protective cover of the hive. Wasps share the responsibility of caring for the larvae and building the hive. A wasps hive design depends on the species of wasps building it. Paper wasps for instance will create a hive that is flat, wide and only a single cell thick while being open and often suspended from a single, thin strand attached to the back of the hive. Other wasps such as the yellow jack wasps build a hive that is made up of layers of cells with a protective outer covering over them with a single entrance. Hornets build a hive much like the yellow jackets while being larger to accommodate their bigger size. The hornets hive is also made with multiple layers of cells in cased in a protective covering with a single entrance positioned at the bottom of the nest while often being egg shaped.
