Mick decided to clean the shed out on Saturday. We don't have a garage so all our outdoor, DIY and gardening things are stored in our shed. As you can imagine, it does get rather cluttered and needs keeping on top of in order to keep it organised. Unfortunately, it's some time since it was last cleared out so it was a bigger job than it should have been really. Still, it's lovely and tidy now and there's plenty of room to move around in there.
I don't know how long this had been there but look what we found, attached inside the shed on the ceiling.
It's a wasps nest. Look how intricate it is. It was obviously abandoned, thank goodness, almost as soon as building had begun as it's not very big, about an inch square.
Taken from the internet "Wasps nests are made of a substance similar to paper that the insects produce by chewing wood into a pulp and then sticking it together with saliva to form a honeycomb-type structure". Aren't they clever.
I find nature fascinating but I'm glad that the wasps didn't stay around to continue building their nest. We want none of that business here thank you.
