I am absolutely thrilled to have my wasp nest collection featured here! This would be the perfect opportunity to educate people on the beneficial aspects of wasps and help the bad reputation of these often misunderstood creatures. Wasps desperately need a better public relations image. Education is the key to a better understanding.

I am an expert on social wasps (as a hobby). I first became interested in these flying insects and their nests as a child in Louisiana when I saw a collection of empty bald-faced hornet (Dolichovespula maculata) nests at a neighbor's home. In my humble opinion, wasp nests are masterpieces of nature. I love collecting abandoned GIANT nests for my collection (The bigger the better!). So for the past 25 years, I have joined in the little-known hobby of wasp nest collecting. I've had numerous wasp nest collections over the years. However, I started my current collection back in the year 2000. I currently have over one hundred nests. There are nests of many different species which are in my collection... including an unusual one from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. I obtain most of my nests on the Internet. People send them to me. My largest addition is an overwintered southern yellowjacket (Vespula squamosa) nest which was discovered in an atypical aerial situation attached to a two-story home. I also have a huge bald-faced hornet nest which measures a whopping 40 inches (nearly 3 1/2 feet) tall! Of course, I have many other exceptional nests. What sets my collection apart from other private nest collections is that most of my nests are absolutely enormous and they are also museum quality.

Here is a video (with commentary) which shows most of my collection:

Although most people think of wasps as pests, they benefit us and the environment in many ways. They help control arthropod pests (flies, caterpillars, bugs, spiders, etc...) by preying on large numbers of them. This really does help to cut down on the use of harmful pesticides. This is healthier for our environment in the long run. Wasps are also used in research and experiments. In some places in the world, people use the immature stages (larvae and pupae) of wasps as food for a good source of protein. Therefore, the benefits to humans far outweigh the harm which they do. Hornets, yellowjackets and paper wasps should not be needlessly killed unless the nests are located in high-risk areas.

I am always looking for more impressive nests to add to my collection. Here is my email address so people can contact me: hornetboy1970@yahoo.com

Please feel free to ask me anything at all if you want to know more about my collection and I. Thanks again.

Sincerely,
Terry Prouty

I'm not fond of wasps, but I won't kill them. I put them outside if one gets in.

Thanks for the info, Terry. I have a new respect for the little guys.
