I've just found a nest of these guys in my stereo that we keep outside. They don't seem to be aggressive (even when I turn the stereo on) but I need to know if they get aggressive. I am allergic to stings and need to remove them if they get extremely territorial. Thanks!

Moved from Euodynerus.

Euodynerus megaera, female (LA)
Tibiae black. The presence of white bands on terga 3 and 4 is unusual.

Thanks Matthias!
Not that I had much of a chance of getting this by myself but even after having Ken and Richard point to the correct genus, I was still stumped by those extra white bands...

Thanks for moving these for me.

Have a great day!
