Front Porch Yellow Jacket Nest - Let's Pretend it's Summer!

Because it's gray and cold and January here in Ohio, we are dreaming a bit of summer (while also working to remain present in the moment!) and want to share a cool home that was made on our front porch this summer.


If you take a look at this felt bird house, you see the entrance looks a bit odd...


In fact, it's covered in paper made by a Yellow Jacket colony. They lived here all summer long and enchanted us with their paper making and social life. Since we never bothered them, they never bothered us. Win, win!


I made a quick video on this warm fall day in October. How I love seeing that warmth....I can almost feel it. (For better quality, check out the You Tube video here.)

  2. Wonderful! We have lots of wasp in summer, They don't bother as you said. Did you see bumble bees are now on the endangered species list? Very unsettling news, so glad we have youngster like you guys leading the way!
