If you have recurring issues with these wasps year after year, something on your property is attracting them. Your technician can investigate what exactly is causing them to return and recommend alternatives for your landscaping, or even a preventative treatment prior to the population arriving during that time of year.
How to Identify a Cricket Hunter Wasp
Nests are often built off of the burrows of another hunting wasp, the Cicada Killer, in regions where they both reside. These two wasps do not compete with each other thanks to different insect prey. Each cell in the underground nest contains a fertilized egg and potentially up to nine or ten nymphs or adult crickets. Grasshoppers may also be used.
Cricket hunter wasps eat crickets that are brought into their burrows by the females.
