This was like two inches long. I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ve lived in Florida my whole life.
Signature: Thanks, Sean S
Your large wasp is a Cicada Killer, and October is very late in the year for a sighting. Most of our reports come in late July and August, though sightings on BugGuide have been reported as late as September.
Thank you very much. I saw him in my backyard yesterday morning. I saw it and couldn’t believe how big it was. The markings are different also, which makes it neat looking. I ‘m glad you could tell me what it was. Thanks again.
