Wasp watch Friday in Ontario Park
Thursday Jul 24, 2014 6:54am
Ontario Park • Howe, IN

ONTARIO - If you’re looking for something different to do tomorrow, the LaGrange County Parks and Recreation Department suggests you join them for a wasp watch.

Cicada Killer wasps are the largest wasp occurring in northeast Indiana. The mere sight of them can be startling. But they seem completely disinterested in people, or much else for that matter, except cicadas. The large buzzing summer insect is prey for feeding wasp larvae. These wasps are large enough to catch, paralyze, and carry to the brood tunnel an adult cicada.

A wasp this large causes many to be concerned, but they are completely harmless. They are not aggressive like yellow jackets. They are very territorial which is why they seldom nest near each other. The sandy ball diamond of Ontario Town Park is easy to dig into and they tolerate each other for the sake of easier nesting.

The Wasp Watch is Friday at 12:15 p.m. Bring a picnic lunch, after which there will be a short lesson on the natural history of these wasps. Then they will move the nesting ground. Bring a camera. The goal is to record a wasp carrying a cicada.

Ontario Town Park is near the intersection of 405N and 230E.
