Spiders are not nearly as spooky as these guys! Parasitic Wasps are now being used as an expensive last resort pest control measure. These wasps lay eggs directly into the host, like a caterpillar or a horse fly. After the eggs hatch, they eat their way out, eventually killing the host. Farmers love these zombie-like wasps as an alternative pest control option for their crops as well as for protection against horseflies, which can threaten their horses and livestock with diseases and infection.

A tiny insect buzzes by, going unnoticed as it whizzes through the air. It is an insect or is it a high tech spying tool disguised as a tiny fly? It may sound like something from a far-fetched Hollywood movie, but in fact it is a new reality in war zones. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is taking inspiration from real insects as they create new robotic tools for the military. While militaries have been using robotic drones in combat zones, this new technology can gain access into even the smallest of spaces. Whether they want to see inside a building or gain footage of a place that wouldn’t be safe to send troops, the possibilities are endless when it comes to this exciting technology.
