Nest plug of a grass-carrying wasp (Isodontia sp.).

Pic #2 shows the impressive nest structures, complete with door locks. This is at Longwood Gardens so of course they're impressive. I'm very curious why so many of the tubes are vacant. Perhaps the closest mud source is still too far away? I stayed for a bit hoping to find wasps (e.g., Trypoxylon) but there was no activity at all. Odd.

Pic #3 shows the sign at base of structures: "Our mason bees are now dormant, and will remain in their hive [sic] until next spring. Please do not disturb them, as they are very vulnerable at this stage."

This makes me sad to post, but here's a Trypoxylon collinum caught in a web at my bee and wasp hotel. I clear spider webs from the structure all the time but sometimes not often enough.
