I believe the first one is a ichneumon and the second one is a very tiny about 1/8 of an inch leaf hopper but I don't know their full names. Can onyone help me name them.

The wasp looks like Ammophila to me. Family - Sphecidae.

They are parasitoids on caterpillars and sawflies and dig burrows where they bury them with egg.

The second looks like a planthopper, perhaps Thionia simplex.

Yep! The first one is Ammophila and the second one is Thionia. Thank you for your help, ONCE AGAIN. I'm trying to ID but so far with no luck. :) M
