What Kind of Burrowing Wasp is this?
We have found a number of these wasps burrowing in our yard. From what I can tell they are solitary, and fit the description of the Cidada Killer Wasp, but the colors don’t match the description of such a wasp. Can you tell from the pictures below? They don’t seem to be too aggressive but we have young children, and we’re finding these burrow in their play area, should I be concerned? Thanks,
This poor, dead, Great Golden Digger Wasp is not an aggressive species.
Thanks so much for your response. I’m afraid the Great Gold Digger Wasp that was pictured, was just a result of our initial panic, I’ll be sure to leave the the others intact. Thanks again,
