There were quite a few of these in an attic. The soffit screens are all intact but there was one area of ridge vent screen that was damaged, probably during installation but possibly by these guys if they wanted in bad enough. Some of them were in exposed locations in the attic, others had taken up residence behind insulation, on the back of drywall. None appeared to be living or particularly recent. In addition to the ridge vent screen, there were plenty of access openings from the walls and even the crawl space (pipe and wire holes wide open). There was also a paper wasp nest in the attic.

I assume these are not WDO, just peaceful visitors.

They don't even have stingers.

The ones around here do. Although they seem very reluctant to use them.

Tried telling that to the 12-year-old daughter of my clients. The old boathouse was full of them. She wasn't buying it.

Mud wasps here too. Insects are amazing.
