This is a Digger Wasp, meaning that the female digs a burrow and inserts insects along with her eggs. The larvae feed upon the stored insects before emerging in the Spring.

This particular species feeds on caterpillars and is found throughout most of Eastern North America.

They are quite peaceful insects and do not sting.

Adults nectar fllowers and prefer wildflowers with large clusters of blossoms.
