Wasps Build Rainbow Nests When Given Colored Paper

In general, wasps are considered aggressive, and many people would rather avoid them. However, nobody can deny that the wasps are a true work of art. The paper wasps are making them by chewing wood in a pulpy substance, and then use their saliva to hold it together.

But can you imagine in your head what would the nests look like if they were colorful?

Mattia Menchetti was a student at the University of Florence, he studied biology. And when he was still studying, he performed an experiment which revealed the side of these insects, that many people didn’t knew about.

He just gave the paper wasps, different colors of paper to use, and the outcome was magical!

Menchetti gave the wasps some yellow paper, and some multicolored sheets, and these hard-working insects made their tiny homes, in order to house their larvae.

The result was shared on Notula Zoologica, and people were amazed by the rainbow-colored wasp nests!

Accidental human impedance with the insect world causes similarly fascinating outcomes. For example, in 2012, French beekeepers were stunned when they discovered green and blue honey produced by their honey bees. It was later found that the bees were using sugar gathered from the shells of M&Ms at a waste-preparing plant close by.
