Potter Wasp Brood Cells

Eumeninae sp.


Potter Wasps use mud to form little brood cells shaped like "urns" or "pots" that protect their larvae until they are ready to spring forth into the world.


You can find their handiwork stuck to leaves, twigs, walls, lighting fixtures, you name it! With a keen eye, you can spot them about anywhere. These were all spotted same-day around our house.
