The emerald cockroach wasp – ultimate parasite May 30, 2007

Posted by Al in : bizarre,nature , trackback

There are not many parasites who are as accurate and efficient as the Emerald Cockroach Wasp. With just two amazingly accurate stings, this wasp disables both the cockroach’s ability to maneuver, and it’s ability to escape. The wasp the rides the cockroach to its burrow, where it lays its egg which then eats its live host very accurately as well. I think this makes the Emerald Cockroach Wasp a strong contender for ultimate parasite.
