Wasp cocoons on a caterpillar

Wasp cocoons on a caterpillar


Rights Managed


Parasitised caterpillar. Wasps most often parasitise the caterpillars of moths and butterflies. Females use their ovipositors to lay eggs inside the caterpillar. Later the larvae hatch and begin eating the caterpillar from the inside out while it is still alive. When the larvae emerge and are fully grown, they spin cocoons on the surface of the caterpillar and soon emerge as wasps.
