Abstract
Building work in the nest is done initially by the queen but increasingly by the workers. The collection of sufficient food reserves (here nettles and poppy) is essential for the growth of the nest. The film shows the structure of the nest, the building of a nectar container, the closing of an egg gallery and building of a roof. The most important building material is wax.
