Scott-just tuned into this post. You may have Great Golden Digger Wasps. The females drag crickets into the burrows and lay eggs on them.

Hello All,

I was hoping someone could answer my question. I have been seeing very large
flying insects at work and was wondering what they were. They have a lot of
orange on them and look like very large wasps. They are always close to the
ground and seem to nest in the ground as well. I've tried to look online but
can't seem to nail it down. 

I can go into more detail but I was hoping someone will know what they are
by my brief description.

 

Thanks in advance

Scott
