Their sting doesn't even kill the cicada. It just paralyzes it.
Because the cicada is left alive, it doesn't rot, so the egg has time to hatch and eat it.

Not aggressive at all to humans (unless you really want to pet one). They just buzz around till they find what they are looking for (cicadas/grubs). They only stay around for a few days to a week and they are gone.

Ya -- I was keeping an eye on them and trying to decide what if anything to do -- and a week later they were all gone on their own!

Ive heard that just sticking sticks down in the holes and leaving them will take care of em and also bring about far fewer the next year. Better than applying a ton of fuel or excess insecticides. Cant say it definately works as ive never seen before and afters.
