LOCATION: Krimpen aan den IJssel, garden


This Ruby-tailed wasp (Chrysis ignita sp. inc.) [1] walked up to one of the closed Ancistrocerus nigricornis nests, see here, and started demolishing the entrance plug. Minutes and a pile of removed rubble later she gave up and continued inspecting the rest of the bee hotels.
