Sphecid, or thread-waisted wasps are very common Apoids. At Applewood, we found multiple genera that prey on Grasshoppers and Crickets (also known as the Orthoptera family or Orthopterans.)
The Thread-waisted Wasp genus Prionyx (above, on Buckwheat, Eriogonum spp.) provisions nests with paralyzed adult grasshoppers that they lay a single egg on.
Isodontia elegans, the Elegant Grass-Carrying Wasp (feeding here on Mountain Mint), is often seen flying with grass blades that they line their nests with, and provision them with crickets and grasshoppers in divided cells within trees, hollow stems or other cavities.
