It’s Summer, and the wasps are making their nests.

This wasps nest was found recently by Wild Things Pest Solutions in its early stage, so it was only about the size of a tennis ball.As you can see the nest is constructed of a paper mache substance which the wasps make from pulped wood. This material is surprisingly waterproof, and as the season progresses the nest could increase to 5 times the size it is now. Typically it's the wasp vespula Germanica or the European wasp that builds its nest in trees and shrubs.
