Cicada Killers in Omaha, NE

Found this buzzing around our little one's sand box. I think this may be a female as her stinger was revealed after she died. (She will be added to our budding entomologist's bug collection.) She also has a friend that has been trying to find her. We hope to catch that one in the coming days.

Hi Beth,

yes that is definitely a cicada killer. I really appreciate the information. It helps a lot. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to drop me a note.

I wonder what species of cicadas that are in Nebraska that cicada killers prey upon. Perhaps maybe T. cultriformis or T. dorsata. I am unfamiliar with the cicadas that far out west unfortunately.
