Blue-winged Wasp

Scolia dubia


The head, thorax, and first two abdominal segments are black, while the remainder of the abdomen is red with two bright yellow spots on the third abdominal segment.


Much of the US except the northwest. Adults take nectar and may also feed on juices from beetle prey. Larvae are parasites of scarab beetles, mainly June and Japanese beetles.


Thanks Paul Davis for the ID
