Beneficial wasps


This plant is called scorpion tail.

It’s a Florida native that we picked up recently. This insect is called a scoliid wasp.

A beneficial insect, a predatory wasp that preys on beetle larvae, also known as grubs.

All the years I’ve been on this homestead I have never seen this wasp, until we got the scorpion tail plant.

Another beautiful lesson in mindfully curating your environment.
