I had an infestation of what I call Mahogany wasps don’t know the actual name. I killed them over the course of two weeks a few a days since they were eating all my monarch caterpillars but then this other type of wasp showed up and I have never seen this type before

Cicada Killer Carnage

Hi Paul,
When we posted the First Cicada Killer Photo of 2012 a few days ago, we predicted that the Cicada Killer Carnage photos would soon begin to arrive.  Cicada Killers are not aggressive wasps but their size makes them intimidating and many folks would rather kill first before learning anything about them.  They will not harm your Monarch Caterpillars and we would encourage more tolerance in the future.  We would encourage you to read more about this remarkable wasp on our site as well as on BugGuide.
