One kind of wasp nest looks like a collection of cell-like chambers. In these chambers, young wasps develop from eggs, through the larval stage, and into adult wasps. When fully developed the wasps chew a hole in the wall of the nest to get out. You can see such holes in this picture of a wasp's nest made with mud.
