What is the point of wasps?

A question often asked, aren’t they just annoying and occasionally dangerous?

Well no, and it’s not just us at Waspinator who think so, there is a lovely article at http://www.sumnerlab.co.uk/wasplove/ which outlines many of their beneficial habits and which emphasises how useful they are.

And why we should try not to kill wasps but to live in harmony and a safe distance from them.

They are beautiful.

They gave us paper.

They are remarkable.

They shed light on evolution.

Wasps gave us figgy pudding.

They control our pests.

They are artists.

In addition to this they are architectural geniuses.
