Summer in Ohio means Cicada Killer Wasps

in Cicadas Bees and Wasps

They’re big, they buzz, and they’re back!
They look mean. Even their name sounds menacing. No wonder so many people are alarmed just by the sight of the big, buzzing cicada killer wasp.

And understandably so, given that they’re the largest wasps in Ohio, measuring around 1¼ inches in length. Their black and yellow markings are also similar to those found on a hornet, meaning the two insects are regularly mistaken for one another. And high summer in the Buckeye State is peak time for cicada killer wasps, the males of which tend to aggressively buzz anything—including people—that enters their territory.

Rest easy, though. While they look scary, killer wasps are not typically dangerous—unless you’re a cicada. That (as the name implies) is what they’re after. But since cicada killer wasps are so numerous in the summer, and since they’re so often confused for the more dangerous hornet, knowing how to spot and potentially control them may come in handy.
