An unusual insect reported in Lancaster County yards during late summer and early fall is the velvet ant.
The females are wingless and are sometimes mistaken for a large, hairy, orange and black ant.
The immature stages are external parasites of wasp that nest in the ground like cicada killer wasp. After the developing cicada killer wasp have formed cocoons, the adult female velvet ants slip into the hole in the ground where the nest is located and lays eggs on the cocoon.


Velvet ants should be left alone, but if control is desired, make sure you have on a heavy-soled shoe before stepping on the insect! The name "Cow Killer Ant" was given to the velvet ant because of the reputation of the female's sting. The adult cicada killer wasp capture and paralyze cicadas and drag them into the underground burrow. When it ready to become an adult, the velvet ant pupates inside the nest of the wasp where it will emerge the next season.


This handsome insect does make a sound (especially when stepped on) but the squeaks of the cow killer ant would hardly be heard over the painful screams, if the person stepping on the wasp was barefoot. The wasp lays an egg on the cicada and after it hatches, the cicada killer wasp larva uses the cicada as a food source.
