  feng (wasps)

 

Thailand

 

 

Wasps differ from bees by the fact that they have no hair and no wax producing glands. Because of this, wasps either live solitary in burrows, create nests from mud or produce paper pulp nests from a substance primarily made from wood fibers, which they soften by chewing, mix with saliva and consequently use to make combs with cells, typically in sheltered areas.
