:) Can anyone identify the pest that made a 1" hole in my lawn, about 30
:) degrees downward (0 degrees is parallel to the surface) and a mound of
:) dirt. A photo appears at alt.test, subject Lawn Pest, 8/15/05 4:48 pm.
Probably a large wasp called a cicada killer
didn't have a pic of the mounds...next year you will probably have
more show up and the year after that even more until you are pretty
freaked out about the wasp activity about and the mounds. They are
considered to be harmless, though if you step on a female she will
sting you. The males have no stinger but will readily buzz around you
in the yard. And the numerous mounds can be unsightly.
