A most unusual hornet looking bug was in the area while I was working and I have no idea as to what it is. The main body was orange and black and legs were orange as well. It would be great to know what this is and possibly where it comes from as I have never seen anything like it in this area.
The Great Golden Digger Wasp is a non-aggressive, solitary wasp found across North America. They are a harmless species. Unless you found it already dead, we are going to have to tag this as Unnecessary Carnage and we hope you will be more tolerant if you have future encounters with Great Golden Digger Wasps.
