Question:
I am looking for the "Mother Load" of websites giving information on the natural history and biology of Digger Wasps. I am particularly interested in those that are found in Vermont. My teenage daughter has developed an interest in them and would like to study them in more detail.


Replies:
This site is a commercial one that encourages spraying the insects, but has some detailed life-style information

This one is for Iowa but may be helpful

This is the national biological information site, which might lead you to more information
