Re: Cicada Killer Wasps


Positive!  At the time we were taking the Master Gardener  course.  Our 
neighbor killed one (not sure if it was the one that chased  him or another)  and 
asked us to have it identified by the Entomology prof.  giving the class the 
following week.  The professor identified it as a  Cicada killer, and that it 
was not uncommon for the female to become aggressive  if she felt she or her 
nest to be threatened.

Noreen,

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.
