“Cicada Killer”

Description from Karokat: A Cicada Killer looks like a HUGE yellowjacket - and we had one sitting on the INSIDE of our front door yesterday. Yikes! And of course, one of my cats went jumping toward it. Luckily my husband stopped Merlin in time - before he ate it and got stung inside his mouth or throat. Disaster was averted, and the Cicada Killer was vanquished and put outside. Whew!

    Yeah! I know exactly what you’re talking about. Those big fellows are scary looking aren’t they?!! 8O
    It’s my understanding they’re not that aggresive but I’m sure they would have caused Merlin a lot of pain if he’d been stung!
    Cool pick too!

    Close call! We usually get cicadas in August and what a racket they make!
    Pretty pick, by the way!

    Very cute story. We get a lot of cicadas here in OK and they are quite noisy in late summer when it is hot! Cool pick.

    Thanks for the comments – any kind of wasp big enough to kill a cicada and drag it into its burrow in the ground isn’t anything I want to mess with – and I don’t want my cats or my dog messing with it either! We don’t seem to have a lot of cicadas yet, but they do make a lot of noise in the summer.
