I am trying to find out the name of this flying insect that is boring holes in the mulch of my yard. It is about 2 inches long has yellow rings on it's tale. It resembles a hornet, but much larger. As it bores out the ground, it leaves a deposit of dirt behind it. The hole resembles a snake hole and is about and inch in diameter. This insect is tunneling. I have seen it carry spiders and a cicada to it's hole. What is this?
it is a wasp! Huge, some sites say it is harmless and not very aggressive, but I am about to dust mine because a bee this size scares the crude out of me! http://doyourownpestcontrol.com/carpenter_bees.htm
