Things are staring to move and groove. Or should I say grow in the back yard.

  1. Bug #4: Cicada Killer or Giant Ground Hornet, Sphecius speciosus (Drury). Following is from Featured Creatures, University of Florida http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/beneficial/cicada_killers.htm: “This wasp is widely distributed east of the Rocky Mountains and south into Mexico. Sometimes common locally in Florida especially during the summer months where many wasps may nest together gregariously. Human encounters with this giant wasp are only seemingly dangerous since usually it is the stingless male which is the aggressor. The four foot burrows may have more than 16 cells which contain one to two cicadas each of many species of Tibicen. The wasps are parasitized by sarcophagid flies (Senotainia trilineata (Wulp); Metopia argyrocephala (Meigen)) and possibly mutillid wasps.” Gary
