The Roles of Dirt Dauber in the Nature - Nature 111

 Many people called it as a "Dirt Dauber," since the insect makes its nest with a kind of mud.

By GoogleID, the insect is identified as wasp or paper wasp with scientific name Pachodynerus sp. 

This wasp loves to build nests in shelter areas include under the house roof or inside structures made by men. 

There are many roles of Pachodynerus sp in nature. Two most important roles, my opinion, are:
- Pollination
- Biocontrol

The Pachodynerus wasps help plants (trees, shrubs and flowers) in their reproduction in order to exist in nature.

This wasp may control pests such as to control potato beetles. The beetles are well known as known as pests of potatoes in Colorado.

Do you know this kind of wasp?

  10. I am glad to know they do provide some benefits. Wasps always scare me a little. Getting a sting from one is certainly no picnic! :-)
