Great Golden Digger Wasp
July 26, 2009
Oh no! Not Terry again! Yes it’s me. And I have another wasp. This one was Identified by John S. Asher as the Great Golden Digger Wasp. Sphex ichneumoneus. Thanks.
Hi again Terry,
The only reason we are allowing you to monopolize our postings today is that you have excellent images and several of your insects are not well represented on our site. We have posted about three other examples of Great Golden Digger Wasps in the past two weeks, including images of three individuals taking nectar from our own blooming onions in Los Angeles. We want to head outside now to photograph the tiny Stink Bugs that are mating on our collard greens. We also will need to identify them.
