We opened up our window on the second storey of our home and found this nest filled with these light green insect resembling a grasshopper. I didn’t think that they made nests so I’m not sure if my assumption is correct or how they would even get there. Any info would be really appreciated.
Signature: Thanks for any info.
This is the nest of a Grass Carrying Wasp. The female Grass Carrying Wasp constructs her nest and provisions it. According to BugGuide: “Larvae are fed Gryllidae (particularly tree crickets) or other Orthoptera.”
