    What is this?

    These things have been flying around our garden and some of my cp lately, they burrow holes in the ground and fly around everywhere, and they are big, about 1.5 inches long I was thinking it might be some type of spider wasp, any ideas? Also, how do I get rid of them? If there is a web site about this insect, what it is, and how to get rid of it I would greatly appreciate it.

    my hated enemy.... cicada killer. those things are nasty... their stingers are huge and are super painful. one was following me around my yard yesterday. the only way to get rid of them is to get rid of the cicadas i guess.

    I've never known anyone who was stung by one, so just relax and leave them alone.

    I was stung by one when I was around 14, I was going to spray it with WD-40 while holding a lighter in front of the can. It stung me and it hurt A lot. He got a double dose of wd-40.
