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 have seen a lot of very disturbing things in my life. After viewing this, I believe I shall go hide in my closet for the remainder of my life. That was just ...just ...{gag}.

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.

I had to shut if off after about 10 seconds. Logically, I'm curious and know better than to be weirded out, but that just made my skin crawl.

edit: In line with Ivan's signature, though... if the wasps had been ingesting Sarah Palin, I would have continued watching and cheered them on.
