Eastern Cicada Killer Wasps Live in the Ground

A-Tex Pest Management of Austin, Texas includes Eastern cicada killer pest control for commercial and residential customers locally and in surrounding areas. Cicada killer wasps, also known as cicada hawks are a large digger wasp species that live in the ground. They are approximately 2” long and are black with yellow markings on the three segments of their abdomen. These wasps are considered solitary and build their nests underground. Some burrow in lawns, edges of concrete, planters, window boxes, flower beds or under shrubs and in sandy areas. Nests often are made in the full sun where vegetation is sparse. As their name suggests, they mostly consume cicadas and other insects. These pests are not very aggressive and rarely sting, but resembling yellow jackets at twice the size, people are often intimidated by their gruesome appearance. Females can sting, but will opt for flight if in danger.
