Re: Cicada Killer Wasps


Was your friend chased by a Cicada Killer or by a European Giant Hornet? They look quite a bit alike, but the European Giants can be very aggressive. They're also attracted to light, and can keep a security light on all night. The European Giant Hornets make nests in trees, usually, though sometimes in barns and houses. Cicada Killers are solitary ground nesters.


I do, Daryl, scary critters....look like giant hornets.  Apparently  the
females are quite aggressive. One chased my neighbor once relentlessly while he was trying to mow. Literally chased him into the house, and was hitting the windows and such trying to get in to where he was. My neighbor didn't come outside for the rest of the day, and was terrified about leaving for work the
next  morning.  Since then we've gotten a whole new respect for these huge
insects, they get to do what they want, and we get out of the way.

Do you know where they nest????
