It was quite easy to locate the Cicada killer mounds, as they were all over the backyard!
The female cicada killer burrows into the soil, preferring loose, sandy soil found along sidewalks and mulch beds, to create a chamber to lay her eggs. The male dies after mating while the female dies after tending to her larvae. The larvae build a cocoon and overwinter to the following summer season when they emerge to start the cycle over again.
To exterminate the cicada killers, I injected a residual dust directly into each burrow.
This product rapidly eliminates the adult cicada killers, their eggs, and the larvae inside the chamber.
