Reward wasps for all their hard work!

Wasps are really hard workers. They patrol plants all the time and when they find aphids and other small detrimental creatures, they have lunch on them... not with them.

So wasps are GREAT for plants and for us, because using pesticides can damage our brain chemistry.

Wasps love to swim once the sun has warmed the water.

Give your hard working wasps a swimming pool. :)

I've never thought too much about wasps, except how to avoid being stung, but now I see them in a new light. Thanks for pointing out some of their finer points!

You're welcome. :)

As an aside, I was looking at your lotus blossom avatar while I was waiting for the message box to open up, and I thought the words above it were, "serene thumb"... until I looked a third time.

Back to the wasps. Put out a basin for them to swim in, and you will not be able to avoid falling in love with them.

Up until three o'clock in the afternoon of May 29, 1941, there was no organization of any kind in American military aviation to provide for either the delivery of planes or air transport of material. By the end of that day, the Air Corps Ferrying Command, which grew into the Air Transport Command with its major component the Ferrying Division, was in existence with an assigned military personnel of two." William H. Tunner, a major, was one of the two. By June 1944 there were 50,000 personnel, 8,500 of which were pilots and the major was a general.

"By the end of the war, the Ferrying Division had delivered 21,092 planes to foreign destinations and made 291,595 domestic ferrying movements."1

Those chosen for ferry duty in the early part of the war were the experienced pilots of the time, most from civilian life. Among them were many famous names - Barry Goldwater, Gene Autry, racing pilot, Joe de Bona, and Indianapolis racer, Rex Mays. Usually considered too old for the combat training much to their disappointment, they had nevertheless been welcomed into the Ferrying Division of the Army Air Corps, Ferrying Division. They performed the invaluable service of flying all military aircraft types from factories to various destinations around the world.
