This just in: Them’s not bees!

For all my fans, willowbatel commented on my post to let us know those are NOT bees in my previous posts today; they are wasps. This is what willowbatel had to say: Bees build their hives out of wax (not the mud-paper that the wasps above are making) and bees aren’t this neon yellow color. Also, bees prefer to live in a hollow, whereas wasps will build a nest anywhere relatively sheltered. Like a bush. (LOL!) Willowbatel said, “I’m amazed that a gardener was able to do this without being attacked. Except to say that because this is a wasps nest it does not constantly have residence in it like a beehive does. Even so, wasps are more aggressive than bees.”

Thank you, willowbatel, for all the good info! I found this cool pic of a REAL bee hive for our readership! And by the way, I’m glad one crazy lady with an I-phone didn’t get attacked either! I’ll be more careful when I check them out tomorrow!
