Five members of the Netherlands Entomological Society section ‘Hymenoptera’, made a field trip to two partly overgrown drift-sand areas in Brabant, a southern province of The Netherlands. A description of the ecotope and a list of collected aculeate species are given and the results are presented by foodchain charts. The aculeate community-structure of these two areas appears to be more or less similar: about thirty species exist in both areas. That some species are found in one area but not in the other is possibly due to a larger (Soerendonk) or a smaller (Budel) part of authentic drifting sands.
