Written in simple, clear language and profusely illustrated, this vintage book contains a wealth of timeless information pertaining to wasps, with chapters on their habits, habitat, enemies, society, species, uses, and much, much more. “Wasps Social and Solitary” is highly recommended for those with an interest in these fascinating insects, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Communal Life”, “Ammophila and Her Caterpillars”, “The Great Golden Digger”, “Several Little Wasps”, “Crabro”, “An Island Settlement”, “The Burrowers”, “The Wood-Borers”, “The Spider-Hunters”, “The Enemies of the Grasshopper”, “Workers in Clay”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with an introduction by John Burroughs and illustrations by James H. Emerton.
