I found these wasps buzzing around in a sandy area. I wasn't sure whether to take a picture of them, or run for my life.These are the biggest hornets that I have ever seen! They're almost two inches long! It was actually easy to identify them. I just googled large ground hornets, and these were the first to come up. I found out that they are not very aggressive. Only the female has a stinger, and they are actually considered to be a beneficial insect. Do you know the name of these wasps?
Here are two sets of prints. Do you know which animals these belong to?
There were several hundred of these mushrooms in one area. What kind are they? Are they poisonous?
THESE ARE STUBBORN WEEDS THAT SHOW UP IN MY YARD EVERY YEAR!
The first three weeds are very aggressive, and really get on my nerves. I try to tell them they're not welcome in my yard, but they don't listen. Do you know what they are, and the best way to get rid of them? Do any of them have any provide any benefit?
The last one likes to get in my trees and hedges. They're not much of a problem, and I like the bright colored berries. I'm guessing birds would probably eat these too. Can you tell me what they are?
