Summary The jewel wasp is a unique creature that is not afraid to take advantage of the bugs around it. This creepy insect, also known as the emerald cockroach wasp, actually takes over the body of its cockroach victims to make them zombies. Jewel wasps use their unique venom to control a cockroach and use it as a nest for their eggs. With full-color photographs of these jewel wasps showcasing their amazing abilities, readers learn how they survive with the unwilling help of other creatures.
