Wow.. they are so clever :frown:
I never saw it before. It's amazing. I don't have a clue about how they developed that behavior/chemicals.

I think this looks close to impossible. The instructions mother follows are too complicated and her behavior is similar to where she and her larvae are being attacked by other species.
