From pictures of wasps I went through on your website, I’m guessing what I removed from my house was a Tarantula Hawk Wasp. Saw one last year in the yard. We have plenty of tarantulas here for it to choose from, usually see those crawling around in April and November. I caught and released it on a sunny 80 degree day.
Your identification of a Tarantula Hawk is correct.
