The story of the wasp

Once there was a little wasp queen.  She was looking for a new home and found what she thought was a lovely place tucked under the eaves of a porch, protected from rain, wind and sun.  She set to work building a sturdy nest, full of individual chambers to lay her young.  Soon she was joined by a multitude of female worker wasps and together they built an elaborate structure, grand enough for the queen.  Life was busy for the workers, continually building and caring for their home until one day...

Poor wasps!  Maybe next time a little farther from humans  :)

The moral of the story is that while it is fascinating to watch nature at work, a little intervention early on will save a LOT of work later.  :)  "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
