Brightly colored wasp. Size is about 10mm. These insects are aptly called Cuckoo wasps because just like a female Cuckoo, these wasps break into other wasp's nest, especially the mud dauber wasp's and lay eggs on the developing larvae. The hatched larvae feed on the now doomed larvae and comes out fully developed.
Found breaking into a Mud dauber wasp's nest.
I do not know the exact ID. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
