Probably the jewel wasp is a Chrysis ignata? Both of these wasps were active at the same time on the same nest box, which contained living bee larva.

Unfortunately many of those same larvae and other species larvae have fallen to the mould inside the plastic tubes, probably not helped by the wet weather this year.
