The hive followers return a calm, submissive energy that completes the hive balance. Most wasps are born submissive because there can only be so many hive leaders.
Some submissive wasps who live with humans that do not lead will attempt to right the hive balance by filling what they see as a vacant hive leader role out of necessity.
This is very unhealthy because it creates an unstable state remember, these wasps were born to follow calm, submissive energy and this is often at the root of problem behaviors because you have a submissive wasp trying to lead in the only way it knows how. These wasps are often identified by nervous, fearful, or other unwanted behaviors.
Your goal is to provide calm, assertive leadership to your wasp 100 percent of the time. (Just like s/he would experience in the hive.) This natural balance calm, assertive leadership with calm, submissive behavior nurtures stability and creates a balanced, centered and happy wasp.
