How do wasps do it?!

There are some nests on the underside of my garage and I got to wondering how in the world those big wasps fit into those tiny little holes in the nest?! It's only as big as about 3 wasps and yet it has at least 8 holes, how do they make themselves small enough to get in there every night?!

Well, insects have no internal skeleton, they have an exoskeleton which is somewhat flexible according to the insect. A beetle would not be able to do the same thing, because their exoskeleton is much harder and less flexible.

Thanks for the answer, I didn't think of that. Glad I don't have to sleep in a bed that small!

Lol, excellent question. One of those eternal mysteries I guess, but maybe they aren't all in there at once? Hot hiving teehee
