Now that it’s about time to start big works in the garden and yard, it’s time to start worrying about bees, wasps and mosquitos.
Just this morning I read that according to a new study that just came out, they’ve determined that wasps can use a form of logical reasoning to figure out unknown relationships from known relationships. What this means is that wasps can determine that if X is greater than Y, and Y is greater than Z, X is greater than Z. For most of history we have thought this was something unique to humans. In just the past 30 years, scientists have discovered that some vertebrate animals (monkeys, birds, fish) can reason like this, but wasps are the first invertebrate that shows this ability.
This news means I am really hoping not to have to spray any wasp nests this summer.
How do you co-exist with all the little critters?
