This yellow-black digger wasp (A specie of digger wasps) is a solitary wasp belong to family Sphecidae. They dig hole in the ground or use pre-existed hole to construct their nest. Females capture and sting the prey to paralyze it. The paralyzed preys are deposited in the burrow. The wasps lay their eggs in the provisioned nest, on the body of one of the prey insects. When the larvae hatch, they feed on the paralyzed insects. They are not aggressive and do not sting people unless they are aggravated or captured by hand.
