Observations on the nesting of three species of Cerceris (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae).
Quantitative data obtained from the nests and provisioning activities of 3 species of Cerceris reveal 4 new genera and 5 new species of prey Chrysomelid prey and introduce a new prey family, Eucnemidae.
Nesting Behavior of Nearctic Species of Oxybelus (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae),
Information on the nesting behavior of Oxybelus bipunctatus Olivier, uniglumis quadrinotatus say, subulatus Robertson, emarginatus Say, and subcornutus Cockerell obtained during 1969-1971 in central New York is presented and results challenge the morphological species group arrangement published previously.

Observations on the nesting behaviors of 11 species of Pompilidae made in southern Florida are presented. Two of the species, Priocnemis sp. (possibly new) and Poecilopompilus a. algidus, are…
Courtship and mating behavior of Phrosinella aurifacies Downes (Diptera: Sarcophagidae: Miltogramminae)
Observations on the Behaviors of Some Scoliidae and Pompilidae (Hymenoptera) in Florida
The first report of burrowing behavior in a male nearctic scoliid, Campsomeris plumipes fossulana, and the first description of the nesting behavior of the pompilid Anoplius bequaerti are presented.…
Observations on the nesting behaviour of seven species of Crabro (Hymenoptera, Sphecidae)
Most Crabro species are rather general fly predators, but cribrellifer appears to show a strong preference for Asilidae, and two species provision their nests early in the morning, before miltogrammine flies are active in numbers.

Abstract Analysis of host selection in 57 spider wasp species and 1 species-complex from the eastern Great Lakes Region revealed new ecological, taxonomic, and size relationships, supplementing and…
Comparative larvipositional behaviours and cleptoparasitic frequencies of Nearctic species of Miltogrammini (Diptera: Sarcophagidae)
Detailed descriptions of the cleptoparasitic strategies of the flies, especially mode of finding the wasp, prey or wasp's nest and subsequent larviposition therein are presented for Hilarella hilarella, Metopia luggeri, Phrosinella aurifacies, Senotainia rubriventris, S. trilineata,S.
