We have lots of Cicadas buzzing in the trees around here in the late afternoon and early evening and yesterday morning I spotted hordes of what I thought were wasps swarming all over the place, then I spotted mounds of sandy soil in the grass and began investigating and googling to find that what we have are Cicada Killers .... aaah Nature!

Yes they are cicada killers, and they're very annoying!
