The nest structure characteristically rules out any species of Polistes. This is some local vespine species.

Hello. I appreciate your interest in the mission however it is not for colonial nesters. Here is from the mission statemen: This is NOT a mission for surrogate care as seen in COLONIAL ants, bees, wasps, etc. Both the parent(s) and young should be featured together in some of the photos.
