Hi all. Me and my housband are interested in animals in old wasp and hornet nests. We would highly appreciate any PDFs or references on the papers dealing with Diptera as hibernators or commensals in wasps and hornets nests. We are mainly interested in Muscidae, Calliphoridae, and Syrphidae info, but all other are welcomed too. Thanks. Katka

Some Phoridae are associated with hymenopteran nests. More in Disney, R.H.L. 1994. Scuttle flies: The Phoridae. Chapman & Hall.
