digging holes in WI
Hi. My wife and I have noticed these wasps digging little burrows in the soil right outside our patio door. From other pics on your site I believe they are great golden digger wasps. I have never seen them here before. I first noticed them this morning when my 2 year old was outside playing and they were swarming around him. I made him come in right away. How can I get rid of them? Raid? Thanks,
Matt from WI
This is, as you suspect, a Great Golden Digger Wasp. It need not be gotten rid of with Raid nor any other means as they are not aggressive wasps. Your time would be much better spent educating your two year old on the wonders and diversity of nature and teaching the child to appreciate and respect life.
