Digger wasps

I would rather study digger wasps then Trantulas because I dont like spiders at all. It's really interesting learning about wasps because the largest wasp is the Cicada killer wasps. It can get up to 2 inches long. They are black with yellow markings and have rusty colored wings. The Cicada killer wasp has a tunnel that is a size of a quarter and extends 24 inches or more into the ground. You can destroy different wasps by an insecticide dust which you put around the nest entrance during the night. Then the wasps will come out of the nest and go away. So, then you would want to put soil over the nest. So, that is why I think its interesting to learn about differ wasps then Trantulas.

Erik Weihenmayer

I consider Erik Weihenmayer to be an inspirtation because he climbed Mt. Everest and hes blind. So I give him credit for being able to climb it for being blind. But, he did have people that helped him up there too. He inspired a lot of people to do things, and that you can face your fears.
