My Creepy Quandry-Resolved

Yesterday I blogged about the Cicada Killers that appear to have taken over our yard. Should I live and let live, or resort to my own killer technique?

I've decided that so far they've done nothing other than scare the bejeebers out of me. What I've read indicates that they won't go after people unless you provoke them or mess with their nest. Guess I can understand that. I'd be pretty peeved if someone provoked me or messed with my nest, too!

So the decision is this: the Cicada Killers and I will live in harmony for the next few weeks of their existence.

Of course, next summer when their young emerge, we'll see if I change my mind!

I concur with your decision! Live and let live---as long as it's reciprocal! I have red wasps getting into the house under the deck door, and unfortunately, that's their last adventure. . .am allergic to them. Have tried to explain that, but still them come, so. . .WHACK!
