A War Wasp Hive on Aether

A War Wasp Hive is a hive that serves as refuge for Light or Dark War Wasps. The creatures will emerge in small groups until the hive is destroyed. War Wasp Hives are featured in Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.

Variants of these include the Hive Mecha of the Ram War Wasps and the large Barbed War Wasp nest in the Burn Dome.

These hives serve exactly the same role as Gragnol Hives from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and Fly Pods from Metroid: Other M, which continuously spawn weak flying bioforms until the Hives are destroyed themselves.

In Metroid Prime, War Wasp Hives are simply known as Hives due to the lack of other hives. They are also named Flitter Hive in one instance in the Metroid Prime Official Perfect Guide.

Primary War Wasp dwelling. Only vulnerable to heavy weaponry.
War Wasps build their homes over crevices, using whatever materials are close at hand. They carry building fragments back to the construction site with their forelegs and glue them into place with adhesives secreted from their abdomens.

Logbook entry

War Wasps require considerable amounts of sleep after a long hunt. They weave a protective hive from organic fluids they secrete themselves, then crawl inside to rest. Though safe from most predators, the hives can be damaged by explosive weapons.
