We have "bee wolves" which I believe are wasps.   They catch and lay eggs in cicadas.

Dear members

  I have, in past years, had an interesting insect hover about my plants, including my dwarf Meyer Lemon.  The insect looks like a rotund shiny, solid-black bumblebee.  It never seems to land; it just hovers about the flowers.  I live on the San Francisco Peninsula.  Does anyoine have an idea of what this insect is?
