This pretty Sand Wasp in the genus Bembix and several of its relatives have been visiting the daisies in our vegetable garden. We allow the daisies and cosmos to reseed each year as the native pollinators like Wasps, Bees and Flies go nuts over the blossoms during the summer and help to pollinate our squash and tomatoes as well. Lesser Goldfinches come for the seeds as well. We are not sure where these Sand Wasps are nesting, but it must be close.
