Started into my little loading shack and saw this bad boy flying around in there so I conducted an evac and retrieved my trusty can of carb cleaner and went back and gave him 2 or 3 burst but it didn't seem to bother him much. Fearing I was gonna piss him off even more I did another evac and pulled out the big gun! Two direct hits with the wasp and hornet spray and he went down. I put a 9mm case next to him for scale, looks like a cross between a wasp and a dirt dawber. I'll catch snakes but a wasp, yellow jacket or hornet will make me hurt myself, hope he doesn't have friends waiting to ambush me when I go back out there!
It's a black wasp. Black wasps are normally solitary and don't nest like red wasps, etc. For that reason, they are also not as aggressive since they don't have a nest to defend. But I'm with you... I don't like any of them.
