I need some help - my place is being overrun with the cicada killer
wasps - aighhhhhh!  They've prevented me from working in four (and
growing) rows, just buzzing all around and digging in the soil.

I assume they are burying their young right now - yes?

We've had them here all along, but there have never been this many.  And
with all of them this year, there will be even more next year, assuming
a mild winter.

So - help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  How can I get rid of these (organically, of
course), and when?  And what do I do about the pupae.

Thanks much -
