    Thanks Vic. I'm not familiar with the type of wasp in the pic. The one's that are common in my area are much lighter in color and have more bands on their abdomens. They are generally of the Vespidae family, but we do have a lot of Sphecidae such as dirt daubers, spider hunters, etc.

    BTW trashcan, the S. alata in the pic is growing in the wild so I'll have to take your advice and leave outside after all.
