That i think , is the large yellow-banded Scolid wasp probably male due to its size. Yes it does like to visit the wild artichoke plants. It is also a predator because it feeds on the larvae of the rhino-beetle by digging in the wood(?). Its venom is special since it acts on the nervous system of the insect and so paralyzing him.
It's also fairly common and perhaps it's the reason why the rhino-beetle ain't that common.
Oh yes the scientific name: Megascolia flavifrons.
Btw pine i'm not that great, thing is i have a good book and i really like fauna and every insect i see i look it up on the internet and learn about it. Every ruddy insect!!!
BTW there's also a photo of that insect in the fauna section of this site and i found exactly the same info i typed! Hey i didn't copy that eeee!!
that's why i haven't posted for all this time, cause i was busy with my exams.
All the 12 subjects are ready
G what is it that i get?
You know what would suit me right now? a haircut! cause right now i look like a bob-marley with my afro-style hair or like tom hanks in cast-away.
