Many types of stinging insects occur around Idaho home landscapes. This 8-page publication illustrated with 18 color photographs deals with insects less well known than bees or yellowjackets. Included are stinging solitary wasps (mud daubers, spider wasps, western cicada killers, digger wasps and velvet ants). Also described are stinging ants (harvester and pavement ants) and non-stinging wasps and flies (Horntails, hover flies, and ichneumonid wasps). Learn about their fascinating habits, benefits, and sting differences.
