They’re Baaacckk! (Cicada Killers)

If you are new to the community garden this year, you may see this intimidating wasp. They have been coming to the garden for years.

They are solitary wasps that burrow in the ground, living off of Cicada.

Thankfully, they leave humans alone for the most part. If you are a Cicada though, look out! 

Don’t be intimidated by them.  They will buzz around your head, but will not bother you. (Unless you accidentally step on them or harass them)

Cicada Maina has a good article about them if you want to learn more.
