Cicada killer vs European wasp?

Asked October 11, 2017, 6:34 AM EDT

Hi, live in Harford county on the water and just started seeing these giant wasp like creatures. Took some pictures from inside the window as it desperately tried to get in, so it's a little blurry. Any idea?

This looks like a European hornet. They can be attracted to the light and may have come in inadvertently. We are not sure if you are dealing with one or many. Here is our webpage http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/european-hornets

If they are not an issue inside your house, no control is necessary. Otherwise , you may need to contact a beekeepr or pest control company http://www.mdbeekeepers.org/swarms.html
