Identifying Cicada Killer Wasps

Cicada killer wasps are typically larger than other stinging pests, around two inches in size. On average, males are two times smaller than females. The abdomen is black with yellow markings on three segments. Their six legs, however, are pale red to orange, and their wings are a shaded brown color. They are typically found outdoors in yards and build their nests underground, and they are usually considered solitary wasps.

Signs of a Cicada Killer Wasp Infestation

One way you can properly detect a cicada killer wasp infestation in your home is the increased appearance of small grainy piles of soil and small holes with dirt paths in your yard. This is a key indicator of an infestation because these are most likely nests and burrows formed by the wasp to catch cicadas, their primary source of food. Most often, these holes are exposed to direct sunlight, which betters their odds of catching prey.

Another way to identify a cicada killer wasp infestation is by spotting one in the open. Due to their solitary nature, you will often find them on their own. However, be cautious when you see one since they can sting if provoked. Although their sting is not as harmful as other wasps, the chance of a severe reaction remains. If you have a severe reaction to a sting, seek immediate medical attention.
