Female parasitoid wasp, video

This video shows a female ichneumonid parasitoid wasp on a tree in the Netherlands.

She tries to smell and feel larvae living in the wood. She will lay her eggs in these larvae. With her ovipositor, she can bore holes in the tree.

Everdien van de Bijl made this video.
