I've received a few emails from people with pictures of wasps they can't identify. I figure someone here could identify this wasp. Anyone have a clue? What's interesting is that a few people are noticing and with the intensity of CCD news from a few months ago reaching the general public, some people are actually scared about these wasps, one person told me in her e-mail - she thinks it's an alien species.http://picasaweb.google.com/keanemachine/Wasps/photo#5098758025481797362
Description is 1.25 - 1.5 inches in length - large body with black and orange stripes.

I need to get me an insect book for the northeast.
