Cherry St. 624-4429 Written collaboratively by Amanda Bachmann, Patrick Wagner, and Adam Varenhorst SDSU Extension Over the past couple of weeks, we have received reports of large, menacing wasps appearing in residential yards and gardens. The wasps in question are commonly referred to as cicada killers (Sphecius speciosus). These wasps become active at approximately the same time as cicadas, which are used as a food source for the larvae of cicada killer wasps. In South Dakota, these wasps are now active and attracting a lot of attention due to their large size and somewhat terrifying appearance. Identification The adult wasps range in size from 1.5 to 2 inches in length. Cicada killer adults will have a reddish-brown thorax (area directly behind the head) and black abdomen with yellow banded markings (Figure 1). These wasps are often observed hovering close to the ground near mounds of excavated soil. The mounds are created when the female cicada killer wasps dig tunnels in areas of bare, sandy soil to create nesting habitat. These wasps are often seen in groups near garages, patios, sidewalks, retaining walls, and in playgrounds where dry, bare soil is readily available. Lifecycle Cicada killers are solitary wasps, which means one female will dig and provision her eggs alone (Figure 2). However, there are often multiple wasps using the same general area of suitable habitat in a yard. The female cicada killers hunt cicadas or other large insects near their selected nesting site. Once prey is caught, the wasp paralyzes it using her stinger and carries it back to her nest. She will then lay an egg on the prey and burry it. When the egg hatches, the larva will consume the prey, spin a cocoon, and overwin- ter in the soil. Warranting suitable environmental conditions, new adult cicada killer wasps will emerge from the area during the following year. 1x12 wasps may look deadly, but in reality, they are rarely aggressive towards humans or pets. Male cicada killers can be territorial. They are sometimes observed patrolling an area and may buzz around passing people or pets. Male cicada killers may appear threatening, but they lack a stinger and are thus incapable of inflicting a painful sting. If cicada killers are nest- No Need to Manage We receive many questions regarding the management of cicada killer wasps. For the most part, these questions arise because of their size and habit of nesting close to areas of human “Quality Service with Reasonable Prices.” activity. “Serving the Vermillion Area Since 1993” Although Vermillion, SD 57069 • 605-624-9140 they do Our Services Include: cause minor • Furnace and A/C Replacement/Repair distur• Hot Water Boiler Replace and Repair bances in • Air Duct Cleaning lawns and • Window Replacements gardens, • In Floor Heating Systems these wasps Licensed & Insured • Call for a FREE Estimate are benign.
