Four-Toothed Mason Wasp

Monobia Quadridens


Often mistaken for the bald-faced hornet, it black with a white band around its waist. The wings are black/iridescent.


It is not social like some wasps. The female finds a hole left from carpenter bees or other burrowers and makes her nest. In my rural backyard, surrounded by a field.
