  • females
  • Based on the observed female adults entering and exiting nests in the field in 2014, 2015, and 2016, the average number of females per nest was 2.48±1.24 (n=23 nests). (insect.org.cn)
  • In our experiment, females did not avoid nests marked with either of the two predator cues. (deepdyve.com)
  • As male Passer domesticus make substantial contributions to nest building whereas male Carpodacus mexicanus do not contribute to nest building, we hypothesized that the toxic effects of exposure to cigarette butts should be greater for females C. mexicanus than for conspecific males, but that there should be little or no difference in P. domesticus . (frontiersin.org)
  • contributes
  • Huang MW, Lin YJ, Chang CW, Lei FJ, Ho EP, Liu RS, Shyu WC, Hsieh CH. RGS4 deficit in prefrontal cortex contributes to the behaviors related to schizophrenia via system x c - -mediated glutamatergic dysfunction in mice. (thno.org)
  • hornets
  • The native Eastern Yellowjackets ( V. maculifrons ) build their nests underground and Aerial Yellowjackets ( Dolichovespula arenaria ) as well as baldfaced hornets build exposed nests in trees, shrubs, or on buildings. (osu.edu)
  • Insects
  • All of these insects use their powerful mandibles to grind-up fibers gathered from dead wood and plant stems which they mix with their saliva to extrude water resistant paper used to construct their nests. (osu.edu)
  • Yellowjackets and paper wasps are important beneficial insects owing to their need to provide protein to their legless, helpless larvae in their nests. (osu.edu)
  • From late-spring through the summer, the ever-expanding numbers of yellowjacket and paper wasp workers keep busy enlarging their nests and foraging for caterpillars, sawfly larvae, and other soft-bodied insects. (osu.edu)
  • cavities
  • Nests are made in cavities , including openings in buildings, hanging plants, and other cup-shaped outdoor decorations. (wikipedia.org)
  • They nest in natural cavities such as an old downy woodpecker hole, snag, stump or rotten wood in a tree (usually 15-20 cm diameter tree at breast height), or in nestboxes . (sialis.org)
  • bulky
  • The female builds the nest by constructing a dense, bulky pile of sticks and bones lined with finer plant materials such as grass and twigs. (birdwatchersdigest.com)
  • Nest is a bulky cup of grass, weeds, ferns, leaves, lined with fine grass and sometimes with animal hair. (audubon.org)
  • occasionally
  • The non-native German (European) ( Vespula germanica ) and Common ( V. vulgaris ) Yellowjackets build nests underground or occasionally in hollow trees, rock crevices, or crevices in buildings. (osu.edu)
  • Our native paper wasps tend to position their nests in a protected location such as under the eaves of buildings or occasionally inside buildings such as in attics. (osu.edu)
  • nestboxes
  • BNA says they prefer a larger interior than a standard bluebird box, but Yvonne and Al Bordelon of Little Tchefuncte Hummingbird Hill have had them nest in a small chickadee size box, and Jack Dodson also found they tend to use his smaller nestboxes. (sialis.org)
  • young
  • The downy young are able to leave the nest immediately, after which a parent will guide and assist them to a brooding platform they have built, and tend them until they are independent, about 10 weeks. (birdwatchersdigest.com)
  • Young probably leave nest at about 9 days. (audubon.org)
  • tall
  • Often nests in tall dead snags. (sialis.org)
  • Their nests are placed in many locations ranging from right on the ground to small bushes, trees and vines, to tall shade trees and large saguaro cactus. (wbu.com)
  • build
  • The wild parakeets build large nests on utility poles which creates problems for the companies that deal with the power outages caused by the nests, and must maintain the wires and the poles. (fox61.com)
  • Southern Yellowjackets ( V. squamosal ) build both underground and aerial exposed nests. (osu.edu)
  • large
  • It sometimes builds its nest on the ground, on top of large rocks, in the top of a tree, or in a man-made object. (birdwatchersdigest.com)
  • However, this is the time of the year when their ever-expanding nests become large enough and contain enough individuals to make their presence sometimes painfully known. (osu.edu)
  • mainly
  • Nesting substrates of X. rufipes were mainly dry woods of spruce, paulownia and cotton wood. (insect.org.cn)
  • Nest structure of X. rufipes was mainly divided into two types, i.e ., the branched and unbranched, which were accounting for 73.91% and 26.09%, respectively. (insect.org.cn)
  • This is mainly during nesting time for egg laying ans well as chick development. (wbu.com)
  • Male
  • In both male and female P. domesticus , however, genotoxic damage was equally apparent and greater the more cigarette butts were in the nest. (frontiersin.org)
  • males
  • Sometime in late-summer to early fall, drones (males) and new queens begin to develop in the nests. (osu.edu)
  • As expected there was more exogenous genotoxic damage in the red-blood cells of incubating female C. mexicanus the more cigarette butts were found in their nest, and much more than in their conspecific males. (frontiersin.org)
  • time
  • A single queen was responsible for starting each of the paper nests visible at this time of the year. (osu.edu)
  • This study aims to describe physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB) across different settings, including time in and out of daycare, and to determine the proportion of children complying with suggested PA recommendations in a high income country. (biomedcentral.com)
  • psychological
  • While the caricature of a 38-week pregnant person scrubbing the bathroom tile on their hands and knees (or an anxious parent purging outgrown kids' clothes) seems frivolous, there's a psychological reason for our instinctive pull to nesting - and it has to do with control, or at least the illusion of it. (apartmenttherapy.com)
  • typically
  • The great black-backed gull places its nest on the ground typically near a rocky outcropping someplace out of reach of the high tide. (birdwatchersdigest.com)
  • typically placed in slight depression, so that rim of nest is nearly level with ground. (audubon.org)
  • season
  • yellowjacket and paper wasp nests only last one season. (osu.edu)
  • A side panel that opens allows for easy clean out of the nest at the end of the season which helps to keep the pest population down. (wbu.com)
  • social
  • Moreover, knockdown of RGS4 specifically in the prefrontal cortex caused mice to exhibit behaviors related to schizophrenia such as increased stereotypy, impaired prepulse inhibition, deficits in social interactions, working memory, and nesting behavior, while enhancing sensitivity to the locomotor stimulatory effect of MK-801. (thno.org)
  • Journal
  • According to an article in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, anthropological data shows us that having control over one's environment is a primary feature of preparing for childbirth. (apartmenttherapy.com)
