What Food Do Wasps Love?

Description

Bees get all the love, but wasps are important too! As predators, they are an important form of biocontrol, in addition to being pollinators. This lesson is an investigation into what foods wasps like best with a taste test of different foods. Then, a second experiment looks at what scents might repel wasps.
