Spider Wasp

Spider Wasp

This solitary wasp isn't as aggressive as the communal yellowjackets or bees, but you probably don't want it inside. As the name implies, it parasitizes spiders. Use a rag or jar and toss it outside. If more come inside your home, find the source of entry and seal that area.
