hmmmm - scary looking.  guess i'd better keep my eyes open if they're in
Houston.  I have lots of cicadas so they'd be happy hunting here.   Like all
stinging bugs (except skeeters) - I leave them alone and they leave me
alone.  Best policy for me, especially since I'm allergic to bee/wasp stings
and have no intention of giving up my garden.
