An unusual insect few people get to see is the "grass-carrier" wasp of the genus Isodontia. This wasp hasn't been recorded in Nebraska since 1920. The wasp gets its name because of its odd nesting
habits. The female wasp fills nest cavities with grasses and other plants, and tree crickets which are food for its young. The wasp in the video is filling the holes made in an "bee house" for Orchard bees. For more info, read the article at http://lancaster.unl.edu/NEBLINE/2009...
