I'm hoping to put my sarracenias under a wasp nest when the pitchers mature. 8-) Then I'll sit back, watch, and relax. :lol:

Oh wait, sorry, I meant yellow jackets. I do see wasps around here, but not as many as yellow jackets.

I must be getting them mixed up. Well, either one. Their nests are round, the size of tennis balls, with a hexagon pattern, and found in corners and cracks.

Sounds like a paper wasp nest, they love my back porch for some reason. They keep making nests and I keep knocking them down

Rarely see any wasps or their kin in my Sarr. Leah Wilkerson. My Neps on the other hand .... eat well during the summer outside.

I have thought about putting my neps on my back porch - I think they would eat like kings, but I gave all of the nepenthes that I would be willing to sacrifice away at a local plant exchange.

Seems like majority of what they are catching are wasps / hornets, but the wasps they catch are not ones that I see flying around. I generally see paper wasps all over, but none inside the sarracenia. I've seen two ladybugs get trapped so far, the first one I was able to help escape :D

Holy macaroni I think this might be better than a dead wasp… a roach!!! This is probably the only sarracenia I have that’s opening is big enough for one. The first time my wife has given me an F- in photography for content!
