In this photo you are seeing what we believe to be a parasitoid wasp. We found it in a nest on the side of the tutorial building. We took the nest inside and dissected it, we put it under the microscope and saw this little guy. We also saw a couple of eggs that looked like small grubs. They were about a 16th of an inch long.
