:) Can someone identify this as friend or foe. I have had no success. The
:) image is not the best, but I did not want to get any closer. She seemed to
:) get very upset when I tried. Anyway, she is currently digging a hole in my
:) garden. I would like to be able to pick the rest of my tomatos without
:) worrying about getting stung.
You might look up "Golden Digger Wasp" and see if it
looks like yours. Or search for "Sphex wasp" and see if
it may pull up some others in the same family. Generally
this group of wasps won't be a bother...can't think of
ever hearing anyone being stung by one, but if you were
to step on the female or maybe her opening barefooted it
may sting....any males around will buzz close to you but
As you slide down the banister of life, may there be no
splinters pointing the wrong way.
