  1. :eek:Man, this thing was as big as my finger. We caught it in our window, we do live in the sticks too.

    Thanks for the info!

  4. Peter-

    It's a female ichneumon wasp. That long abdominal appendage is an ovipositor, which she uses to deposit eggs within the selected host. But, not to worry; they don't parasitize humans. :thumb:
     
  5. To envision the lifestyle of the larvae of this type of wasp, think ALIEN.
