An experimental analysis was conducted to determine if chemicals from the cuticle of a social wasp are used in nestmate recognition. These chemicals were also subsequently identified. Laboratory colonies of Polistes biglumis bimaculatus were presented with (1) dead nestmates and dead non‐nestmates, (2) dead nestmates and dead non‐nestmates that were subjected to solvent‐washing to eliminate epicuticular compounds and (3) dead nestmates and dead non‐nestmates that were treated again with… CONTINUE READING
