What Purpose do Wasps Serve?

Very often people ask us what purpose do wasps serve?

In early summer wasps, like bees, pollinate plants and flowers as they feed on nectar. If we were to eradicate all wasps, it would cause more problems than it would solve. So, wasps do serve a purpose, and despite being a problem at certain times of the year, they are a beneficial insect. So in the natural world, wasps although irritating to humans, have their role to play.

Wasps and hornets are predatory insects and spend a lot of their time hunting and catching smaller insects to feed to their larvae (young wasp grubs). Insect prey killed by the adult wasps is chewed up into small food packages and taken back to the nest. These food parcels are then fed to the young wasp larvae which turn the exoskeletons (chitin) of these prey insects into a sugary solution which they feed back to the adult wasps.

It is difficult to guess the exact numbers of insects which are killed by a single wasp colony through the course of a summer. It has been suggested that a single wasp nest will catch approx five metric tons of insects in one year. While we are not entirely convinced of that number whatever it is, it will be substantial.

Is that five metric tonnes of insect pests or just five metric tonnes of insects?

I'd rather have five tonnes of harmless insects than a wasps' nest.

Year
1600 = 500,000,000 (500 million / half billion)
1800 = 1 billion
1927 = 2 billion
1960 = 3 billion
1974 = 4 billion
1987 = 5 billion
1999 = 6 billion
2011 = 7 billion
2019 = 7.7 billion

2030 = 8.6 billion
2050 = 9.8 billion
2100 = 11.2 billion

All those people need food, somewhere to live and power for their homes and transportation. We are forecast to lost 5% of the world’s land to sea level rises. That low land is frequently used for crop growing.

Obviously religion. Knock on effect would be ridding the world of a lot of people who target certain religions too. Double action.

Do gooders, political correctness, health and safety, people who try and tell us how we should live our lives, teeth veneers, unnecessary plastic surgery, compensation culture, ambulance chasers, blame culture and all the other modern day crap we have to put up with.
