Cicada Killers Call St. Petersburg Home
Not many people know this but one of the most popular types of wasp in St. Petersburg is the cicada killer. This wasp is not only native to St. Petersburg but can be found across North and Central Florida.
As the name suggests, the cicada killer kills cicadas and buries them with larvae underground. In general, the cicada killer is bigger than other wasps—up to two inches—and unlike most other types of wasps they do not typically live in large groups, instead choosing to nest individually. Cicada killers also possess a striking appearance that differentiates them from other more traditional breeds of wasp, and their yellow stripes and black body combined with a reddish-brown head and thorax means that they certainly couldn’t be mistaken for a yellow jacket or paper wasp.
Despite their slightly aggressive name, cicada killers are not overly aggressive and will generally only sting if they are threatened. That being said if they perceive that their natural habitat—including their nest or surrounding area—is under threat then they are definitely more likely to sting.
