This was like two inches long. I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ve lived in Florida my whole life.

Cicada Killer

HI Sean,
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.
