Cerceris fumipennis nest sites

Latest version published by Vermont Center for Ecostudies on Oct 19, 2019 Vermont Center for Ecostudies

The solitary parasitoid wasp Cerceris fumipennis provisions its nests with beetles from the Family Buprestidae. Nests formed by these solitary wasps are often located in non-social colonies within hard-packed, sandy, and exposed soils. Female wasps forage for prey on sunny summer days when many species of buprestid beetles are active. Taking buprestid beetle prey from wasps intercepted as they approached their nests is used to survey for the presence of many buprestid species. Biologists and citizen science volunteers surveyed C. fumipennis colonies for Buprestidae from 2009-2016.
