Vespidae

 

(true wasps), a family of hymenopterous insects. The fore wings fold along the back when the insect is at rest. The abdomen often has alternating black and yellow stripes. The Vespidae include both solitary and social species. The females of solitary species feed their larvae with paralyzed insects (Eumeniinae, Euparagiinae, and Zethinae) or pollen (Masarinae). Social wasps have fertile females and barren females known as workers. They build complex nests of paper (Polybiinae, Polistinae, and Vespinae).

That would also explain the recording of those Vespidae only in perennial trees in the Reconcavo Baiano region, where the hotter climate makes higher shading of the colony necessary during the year, which would be obtained by nesting in plants with that characteristic (MARQUES; CARVALHO, 1993).
