  • Summary1.The wasp Polistes versicolor Bequaert waggles with a frequency of 10.6±2.1 Hz (n=190).2.Two wagging periods of a duration of 0.33±0.09 seconds (n=34) follow within a second. The next pair follows after 10 or 20 seconds.3.At the turning points of the wagging movements two types of sound burst of an intensity between 70 and 80 dB occur. One type of sound has peak intensities between 5 and 13 kHz, the other type has peak intensities between 1 and 3 kHz.4.The flight sound at 25° C has a… CONTINUE READING
