Wetland Campers spotted this wasp digging a hole in the path this week! We placed cones around her for safety and watched from a distance. Our guest speaker on bugs, Jim Steamer, took this photo and let us know that this is a Great Golden Digger Wasp female, who digs a chamber and lays eggs, then places a paralyzed prey (like a grasshopper) in the hole for the larva before covering it up again! What a great lesson at Wetlands Camp! (And we learned that these wasps are not aggressive and are considered beneficial). Click here for some quick facts about this insect, or HERE for an interesting study some folks in Texas did on these wasps.
