Solitary Wasps: Behavior and Natural History (Cornell Series in Arthropod Biology)
By Kevin M. O'Neill
Comstock Publishing, 2000
ISBN: 0-8014-3721-0
Cite: 13459 with citation markup [cite:13459]
Contains information concerning the behavior of a variety of solitary wasps (e.g. sphecid, pompilid, and vespid wasps). This is not, however, an identification guide and this book does not treat what are considered parasitic wasps (e.g. chalcid and ichneumon wasps). Includes a number of summarizing tables as well as case studies of particular species.

Excellent book.
This is a great reference for anyone interested in solitary wasps. A surprising number of illustrations, and easy-to-understand tables helps make this a really user-friendly work.
