Check out the IchnemonWasp_withdrawing video to witness just how long this ovipositor is.

- Large Ichneumon Wasp (Rhyssa persuasoria) While tidying up the garden I happen to notice a female Large Ichneumon Wasp (Rhyssa persuasoria) hunting for a living host to act as an incubator and food supply for its progeny. Normally this species of Ichneumon hunts down the Giant Wood Wasp (or Greater Horntail as it's sometimes called) so I'm guessing this Ichneumon has chosen an alternative source either through convenience or because the natural population of the Giant Wood Wasp is in decline? Either way, it was fascinating watching this insect listening out for movement through a few centimeters of solid wood. As you can see from the video it uses its antennae to look for chemical markers that indicate that a suitable host is hidden nearby. It also feels for the vibrations given off by the larvae as it moves within its nesting chamber. It's been years since I last saw a Giant Wood Wasp and I'm certain there isn't any living in or near the garden so I can postulate that this wasp has adapted its behaviour and found an alternative host type. If anyone knows any different please drop me a line via this site or comments section. Thanks, Andrew
