    I had one land on my deck a few days ago. It was a blue-turquoise in color. I thought it was a fly on a diet. It was identical to the second picture above.
    I’m up in North Eastern New Brunswick, Canada on the Bay of Chaleur.

    Long-time thread, but never-the-less, if anyone is interested … I took this picture today and just looking to confirm it is also the Cuckoo Wasp.

    I just found one in my house, I tried to kill it. It was curled in a ball. I went to get the trash can and looked back, it was gone and back at the window. I thought it was a fly at first. Not a fly. I live in Maryland.

    It sure looks like the cookoo wasp, but smaller and looks like a fly..I hit on my window with my hand and it landed on my table..i thought I squashed it with an candle end..it curled up in a small ball..I hit it again then it rolled onto my floor and stomped it dead, or so I thought..I tried to stab it with a tooth pick..no way it bounced away 3 times..the pick stuck to the wing and I put it in a bottle to take a good look..I was sure it was dead..no way..one wing is damaged..I will save it and have an expert ID the dang thing..I am a senior lady and live in Port Dover Ontario Canada..never seen one of these..I would love to know for sure just what it really is..thank you…Carol
