Amazing how wasps build their nests from the ground.

Vespa affinis


Hi all of you..
Collecting dust grain by grain, that's what this wasp does, continuously pacing to the ground and back again to the tree, out of curiosity I tried to see what it was doing, it turns out that this wasp is building its nest from the soil and dust it collects, it's amazing what I saw today.

Friends, what I briefly tell you is the opening of our meeting today, one of my stories today is about wasps endas.

The endas wasp that we or I saw today has the Latin name Vespa affinis, this type of wasp belongs to the Order Hymenoptera which comes from the Phylum Arthropoda. Wasp endas or wasp Vespa is a social insect and also as a predator for insects or other arthropods, which are smaller than him.

Some facts about endas wasps:
  • In the body shape between male and female, female wasps are larger and longer than male wasps.

  • The largest population of this wasp is in the tropics in general, Southeast Asia is the largest habitat for this wasp.

  • The male endas wasp does not sting, only the female wasp stings, and the sting is very painful.

  • Endas wasp food is the same as other types of wasps, namely flower nectar, but this wasp also preys on other insects.

  • Stings from this endas wasp in some cases, have caused death in humans.







When I took this picture of the wasp, I managed to take some pictures when the wasp was making a nest in the tree, but this picture is not clear because the distance is a bit far. when you feel threatened.
