Insects. #11

Hi everyone!

Welcome back to our insect series! Today we have the “Thread-waisted wasp, Ammophila species.” These are a solitary wasp that nest in the ground. They are about an inch (2.5cm) long and their waist is truly thin! Mostly they will eat nectar but their young need a caterpillar to feed on so the adult will kill a caterpillar and stick it in the nest for the young to feed on. They seem to be quite a friendly wasp though. They like the warmest part of summer to fly around. Have a great day everyone and God bless!

    • Yes, they don’t really look like a wasp and they are very interesting to watch. I’m not sure if they sting or not. Have a good night!😊😻🌙😴
