Did the wasps emerge and the ants move in?
Temporary shelter?
Are the ants just visiting and feeding on wasp pupae?
Thanks

Interesting, I guess they could be nesting in the fluff. This species is an opportunistic cavity nester after all.

 
Thank you.
I guess if I knew my ants well enough, or at least better, I might have remembered a previous encounter in a temporary shelter. You giving them an ID sure helped.
