yes, you definitely do have Mutillidae up there. when i worked for the traveling zoo for a while, we went all over the east coast, and midwest. i specifically remember seeing them where we were near Harrisburg, PA. the first one i ever encountered was in Orange, Virginia about two weeks prior to seeing them in PA.AntsRule wrote:Does anyone know if PA has a sp. of these? I believe I just found one
First time I saw these was in basic training in gorgia thought it was a fuzzy ant and it stung my I in the finger def a powerful sting made my arm throb and got very pale,dizzy, and nauseous for a couple hourslarynx wrote:AntsRule wrote:Sorry I am not familiar with Georgia sp. what sp. is she?

It is Mutillidae sp. I believe. Not really well versed on them quite yet. And yes they pack quite a sting. Not one I would ever want to feel.
