Cicada Killers in Redding, CT

Glad I found your site! That thing in the kitchen is really scary. Well, now I know that she is a Cicada Killer. I will try to get a good picture. How shall I get her out of my house without harming her?

Hi Laurie,

Thanks for the photo of a cicada killer. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if it's male or female from the photo. If it's a male, you don't need to worry about it as males do not have stingers so you could realistically catch it in your hand and just let it go.

If its a female, I would just open a window or door and chase it out with a broom or something. Thanks for the photo.
