Our annual visitors are back. Our visitors are called Cicada Killer Wasps, or Sphecius speciosus. (Can you pronounce that? I can’t!)
As usual, they have dug into the yard in several places along the driveway. (Can you see how dry our grass is?)
Louie is doing his part this year to reduce the number of them, and having fun doing it. Nothing else we have tried has helped.
They seem to be the slowest early in the morning, and right before sunset. The coin laying on the driveway next to the wasp is a quarter, to show you how big they are.
My Big Bad Wasp Killer has killed 15 wasps so far.
