Last spring I told you about the crazy wasp who was building a nest inside the door to the gas cap on my car. I really thought that was the end of my wasp problem. Nope. Not a chance. I opened the driver's door, and there in the little space where the inside of door is hidden when the door is closed I found this:

Is a wasp-free car too much to ask? Is there something about my black Saturn that has turned it into a rolling home for wasps, sort of an insect's travel trailer? If you've had this problem I'd love to hear from you--maybe we can start a support group. Or a rescue service for homeless wasps.
