that's not uncommon, well it is uncommon to some, but I see it from time to time in my little world. thus why wasps tend to build up high so ants can't get to them as quickly. but ants are the most interactive among the insect kingdom in the sense that they welcome any, even so much so they become hybrids until finally the original is bred out and only the new hybrid and/or the dominate one takes the species. they are fascinating all the same, even if some can bite. I've been bitten by them in running water, so, even as they die and drown they are fighters.

Where can I get some of these ants? There are 3 huge wasp nests outside my bedroom window, I didn't notice them earlier because I rarely open my windows and curtains.

Pretty impressive. The wasps should've known better than to antagonize them.

I feel like I'm picking up on the wrong point here, but anyhoo... wasps don't make honeycomb do they? I assume the ants where actually after the larvae, not the honeycomb as the story says?
