Can anyone tell me what these insects are? I have a nest of them under the tiles on the front of my house in South London.
This is the Wasps Nest Beetle, Metoecus paradoxus.
The nest you have under the tiles will be a wasps nest as the larvae of this beetle feed and develop within the nests of social wasps - the adults are just tipping out now.
Thanks for that bombuslucorum, that's really useful.
