    Ophion for sure.

    Oh nevermind, guess I'm late to the party as usual. I wouldn't worry about it stinging you, you're not a caterpillar so it's not going to lay eggs on you.

    This is most definitely a WASP! Their stingers are non-retractable so, they don't deliver any venom into the unwilling vertebrate they're stinging. They are also capable of biting! Their stings tend to itch as well as hurt for an hour, maybe longer in some cases, then they begin to subside. They're nocturnal insects. Tend to be attracted to light sources, like mosquitoes. Although sometimes they fly into unwelcoming humans homes, they tend to stay around vegetation where their "babysitters" & food sources are. Their "babysitters" are the larva of whichever food source that particular species is designated for. They use their stingers to inject their eggs into the larva where they'll stay 'til they hatch & consume the larva. You'll also find the adults mostly around Mimosa trees.
    I've had three of these little bas***d's get into our home in the last four nights. I have a VERY curious 31 month old toddler. So, I can't risk him trying to grab one of these (he's already tried with a "normal" wasp, luckily it only bit him but, he still wailed in agony ). So, once these unwanted annoyances met their untimely yet inevitable ends, I took a picture of them & used Google Lens to determine exactly what they were.
    I realize the o.p. was posted five & a half years ago but, after reading all the misinformative posts, I just could not not post the truth.
    So, just in case someone out there is experiencing a similar situation as the o.p. & myself have experienced, here's a little tidbit of information about these unwelcomed (at least in my home), nocturnal mosquito-like-wasps.

    But Airbud never wrote whether he gave birth to little wasps in aftermath.

    Pretty sure it might be one of these. Possibly.

    Maybe not...
