Author's notes

I understood these to be mud wasps. They are not aggressive, they have not stung me. I let them live and breed under my house as I understand they eat termites. they build their homes in corners and crevices.

Well done Kerry. Can you describe the wasps? Colour, size? Was there just one wasp or several?

They are slow moving (for a wasp...). A bit blobby in shape, round one might say & about 3 or 4 mm long & dark coloured.
