type of wasp
Hello, This is Scott again from Austin TX. I took this photo of some sort of wasp. I was wondering just what type of wasp it is? I did not know wasps were attracted to flowering plants. I have also caught yellowjackets (paper wasps) on my pride of barbados plant.Thank you for you help.
This is one of the Thread Waist Wasps, the Black and Yellow Mud Dauber, Sceliphron caementarium. It has a coast to coast range in the U.S. You can find more information on BugGuide.
