Emerald Wasp

Emerald Wasp attacking Cockroach In the mid afternoon as I was roaming about in the garden I came across this  Emerald Wasp which is also known as jewel wasp. This female wasp was flying here and there. I took the camera for clicking it. Then I saw a cockroach lying on the side of the wall.As I dislike the cockroaches , I ignored it and was following the Jewel Wasp. The jewel wasp flew near the cockroach, and there was a small fight between them.

The Emerald Wasp managed to sting the cockroach near the neck part. After few mints the cockroach fell silent. Then I saw something amazing. The Emerald Wasp started to drag the cockroach antenna. The cockroach which was triple the size of the wasp started to walk silently.  The wasp dragged the  cockroach through until it reached a hole in the old wall which was made of mud.   Then it turned backside and went inside the hole and pulled the cockroach neatly into the small hole. Then after few seconds it came out, and was searching for something. Then it came across some small stones and hard mud. The Emerald Wasp took them one by one to the whole where the cockroach is. It kept the stones and the mud inside the hole and covered it. Then it came out and cleaned itself. Then it left the place.

You can watch the video by me in you tube

The wasp makes the cockroach as the host for  laying the eggs. The eggs when hatches out will as a eat the cockroach and grows fully and come out of the hole as a fully grown cockroach.
