Someone gave me this Mud dauber nest that happened to be split in just the right spot to expose the pupating wasp and it's parents spider collection. I just thought it would be cool to watch it emerge assuming it does. It appears to be in good shape. So I put it into a perfectly fitting vial and put it on my dresser at home.

any updates on this? I found Sceliphron caementarium flying around my office the other day, and looked into what it would take to keep them. 

Ultimately decided to let it go but it was a fun learning experience.
