The Return of the Cicada Killer Wasp

I thought I had a handle on these wasps. That was, until I had a nightmare about them last night. Right after falling asleep last night I had a nightmare about these wasps. I woke up from my dream and was shaken. I couldn’t go back to sleep right away. I stayed up and read the paper some.

It’s scary. I didn’t think this was that big of an issue, but evidently it was on my mind.

In good news, I killed another one before leaving for work.

Cicada Killer Wasp

Cicada Killer Wasp I’ve been fighting with wasps the last couple of weeks. Well, today I shot them with my camera and compared them to images I found on the web and I have cicada killer wasps! Luckily they only kill cicadas and not humans. In fact, they don’t seem to aggresive, but they are big and ugly and still very scary! I’ve been killing them one by one and today I bought mulch to hopefully deter them from burrowing in my flower bed. I also found some other things to try if they stick around too much longer.
