Beetleporn + bonus wasps

Was out today cycling and spotted several trees full of mating beetles. We stopped to get some pics and noticed something interesting...

...wherever there were mating beetles, there were wasps around in the gouges on the bark the beetles create as the mate.

More than one kind of wasp, too. Were they collecting the softened bark to make their nests? Or drinking the sap?

Or gall wasps, maybe?
