The much maligned, beneficial wasp


I took this photo last weekend of a Sapygid Wasp on one of the Yellow Coastal Bush Lupine blossoms Lupinus arboreus .

And see the nasty plump pale green aphids walking around the blossom and its stalk.

It's the perfect image to demonstrate the fact that wasps are also very beneficial insects.

They eat those nasty aphids that love lupines.
