As the fall weather grows cooler, the hard-working hornets begin to slow down and lose their vitality. The queen mother lays fewer eggs and the nursemaids do not care whether they tend the infants or not. Hosekeeping chores and repair jobs are neglected. The papery nest becomes a sloppy mess littered with flaky debris and scraps of decaying caterpillar meat. The queen has her mind on mating with the drones and the regular routines of hive discipline are forgotten. The sluggish workers give up their marketing trips outdoors and begin to perish one by one from hunger and cold. Soon only the queen is left. Before the first frost she deserts the papery nest, maybe because the place is in such a shambles. She flies off in search of a cozy hiding place and crawls into a crevice just big enough to hold her furry- body. There she sleeps through the cold winter months. When spring returns, Her Majesty awakes and searches for a high branch, an overhanging eave or some other suitable place for building a new nest for the coming summer. Then she gathers and chews up wood pulp to make a few papery cells. Into each cell she places an egg and waits about a week for the brood to hatch. She gathers caterpillar meat to feed the hungry grubs until they change into sleeping pupae. After 10 days, toe pupae ^,' hatch into adult worker hornets. These spinster daughters immediately take over the duties of adding more papery cells, foraging for food and defending the family property. The queen mother retires to concentrate on laying eggs. During the summer, the hanging paper nest may grow bigger than a football and the queen may lay 25,000 eggs. However, the mortality rate among the busy workers is high and the hornets colony rarely reaches more than 5,000 members at a time. After the queen departs, it is wise to tear down a hor- nets' nest. Its debris and decay attract flies, cockroaches and other unwelcome pests to the neighborhood. We tend to think only of the hornet's fiery sting, but the handsome insect is an ally in our gardens. As an adult she sips only nectar, spreading pollen as she visits the flowers. The hornet grubs eat caterpillar meat. The busy worker removes these greedy gobblers from the garden as she takes home food for the family. Send questions on postal card to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 2406, Phoenix, Ariz. 85002.
