Zombie spiders and Mud Wasps


Had to change my battery in my pyrometer and found one if the nests of the mud wasps and their gruesome cells with zombie spiders and the larvae.

mud daubbers... we lived in a school bus in the late 70's. The female came in with a wad of mud and patiently waited while we dodged her so she could get to her building. The male (smaller) came in to do his job and invariably got lost so we had to guide him back out.
Potter's wasps build a little pot on the wall...often on a window pane. hey..they don't sting unless trapped.
ever fire one of the organ pipes? They know good clay!
