Wasps, lamb leftovers and fig pollination

Wasps love meat and they come round every time we barbecue. This one is digging in to enjoy his share of the lamb bones.

In addition to controlling populations of other pesky insects, wasps can do pollination work too. In fact, the fig wasp specializes in pollinating fig trees.

We have taken a live and let live attitude toward them. They buzz around when we eat on the back porch, but not aggressively.
